Seedless avocados exist—and the sight of them will make you uncomfortable!
FFOR MANY, THEpit ofthe avocadois, well, thepitof the avocado. Many an unfortunate avocado lover has sliced a finger or smooshed (and ruined) the nutritious green fruit while trying to remove it, to the point of annoyance that you might wish they didn't exist at all.
But sometimes you just don't appreciate what you have until it's gone. And while some will hail this as a triumph of modern agriculture, we're...upset.
That's right: Someone has created a seedless avocado, and you can actually purchase them at your local supermarker—if you're in the United Kingdom, that is.
But if you're worried about genetic modification, there's one (and only one) thing these avocados have going for them—they're developed completely naturally. "The avocados are formed by an unpollinated avocado blossom," Marks and Spenser said in a statement to clear up any confusion. "The fruit develops without a seed, which in turn stops the growth, creating a small, seedless fruit."
