24 Dec, 2016 The Twister Fruit Picker®: A Great Avocado Story!
Pick your avocados with The Twister Fruit Picker®, and if you live in a climate that is conducive to growing avocados, we’d like to share a great avocado story with you!
We recently visited our friends Scott and Susan in Hawaii, where avocados are abundant. In taste testing avocados, we soon realized that not all, even in the same variety (like Hass), taste the same. Some have a very creamy, buttery taste and others, though they still have the same texture, don’t quite taste the same. If you find an avocado that has the right texture and taste, it’s hard to settle for anything less. Scott and Susan have a tree that produces the most delicious, creamy, buttery avocados.
Their story goes like this: After eating the best avocado they had ever tasted, they sprouted the avocado seed with toothpicks in a glass of water. Once it had roots, a stem and leaves, they planted it in the ground. Today the tree is thriving! At six years old, it is over 14 feet tall and produces an abundant crop of avocados.
One sure way to get a great tasting avocado is to grow it from the seed of a proven winner. The Twister Fruit Picker® is a perfect way to get those delicious avocados off the tree without a ladder. We used The Twister Fruit Picker with Extension Pole that comes with the new and improved soft Fruit Sleeves. The firmness of the avocado required a tighter rope tension, while the fruit sleeves helped to securely grip the avocado and allowed us to twist it from a relatively thick stem.
We would like to thank Scott and Susan for sharing their great avocado story with us. We hope that you will consider using The Twister Fruit Picker® or The Twister Fruit Picker with Extension Pole for picking some of your favorite avocados.
