With 2 billion avocados consumed in America every year, avocado production has to be able keep up. The majority of avocados sold in the U.S. are imported from Mexico, where the fruit is able to grow year-round. California, the biggest domestic producer of avocados, may someday be able to grow avocados all year. Researchers are working on an avocado tree that can survive the weather extremes in California’s Central Valley. One type of avocado will not be available in the U.S., however: the seedless avocado. Only available in England, and only during the cold month of December, the seedless avocado, also known as the cocktail avocado, are sold by British retailer Marks & Spencer.

I need these in my life. I hate having to pit avocados, especially when all I have to use are a plastic spoon and a paper plate.
