Seedless Cocktail Avocado Fruit Trees (Fuerte)

Seedless Cocktail Avocados often come from a partially pollinated Fuerte Avocado

Transcript of Seedless Cocktail Avocado Video 

oh look at that there's a whole bunch of them

I'm often asked if we sell a cocktail
avocado tree and these little finger

sized avocados are cocktail avocados but
they're off the same tree as this

particular avocado which is a fuerte so
these are furte avocados that haven't

got complete pollination so what happens
is we get seedless some shaped fruits so

that these beautiful seedless creamy
fleshed avocados just like the Fuerte but

they're not as large and they don't have
the seed in the middle and this is what

a cocktail avocado is so if you want to
grow these cocktail avocados if you grow

a Fuerte avocado on its own so without a
companion plant so it doesn't get

cross-pollination there's a good chance
that you'll get cocktail avocados on

your tree as well as full-sized fruits
so this tree here we're in the exclusion

orchard and this is the only avocado we
have in here so it's pollinated by

native bees and honey bees but they
don't completely pollinate all the

flowers and they don't cross pollinate
so they don't introduce the pollen from

another variety so what we get is a
really good crop of full-sized avocado

and a small crop of cocktail avocados
and these are just great they're little

bite-size delights

so what's the appeal of the cocktail
avocado so firstly they're a little bit

unusual a seedless avocado it's very
appealing you don't waste anything can

use it all at once you don't have
that problem of half an avocado in the

fridge that you often have because you
don't want to eat a whole fruit and

they're really appealing to
restauranteurs and chefs who use them

all in all sorts of interesting ways so
you're limited by your imagination in

how you can use an avocado but the
cocktail avocado is quite an exciting

thing to have in your kitchen and you
can present them beautifully on a plate

for your friends when they come round
for dinner
