A single avocado tree is responsible for 95 % of avocado in the US

People are always split when it comes to avocado. There are foodies who love it and then there are foodies who completely hate it. Either way, avocado is something that we cannot stop discussing due to various reasons.

And in case you did not know, around 95 per cent of the avocado in the United States can be traced back to a single tree. The tree was planted back in 1926 by a postman Rudolf Hass. Almost all the avocado that we get in the US market is descended from this tree. And as a tribute to Hass, the avocado is usually recognized as Hass Avocado.
