    Maybe if we were there, Mr AE prefers to give them away.  Plus we’re sure the neighbors sneak over and help themselves. We have about 50 avocado trees.  Please help yourself.

    I read somewhere that there is a disease attacking the "USA" banana variety and it's not possible to stop the attack, one day soon there will be no more of bananas of that variety.

    Avocados in North America (mexico, usa for sure and probably canada) are horrible compared to DR. Here's a photo showing the difference. I recently read an article that some company developed a chemical spray to extend the lifetime of the North American avocados by about 5 days. However, I believe they will still pretty much only be useful for whackamole.

    The problem is a lack of genetic diversity in the yellow banana. They mention this at some point in this video.

    yes, that is probably correct.. i thought maybe the curse of the ghost of my friend's relative. (if his soul is floating around he's probably at least amused by the American banana problem)

    That is how I like to make maduros; in the oven with a pat of butter in the aluminum foil.
