Once Upon a Giant Avocado Seed




Once upon a time, a really, really LARGE avocado fell on the roof of MadSnapper's house 

Bob, the man who planted the seed, that grew the avocado tree from a seed,  ate the giant avocado. 

All by himself. With a spoon and salt and pepper.

Bob handed MadSnapper the SEED. 

The biggest seed from the biggest avocado, we have ever seen. 

This avocado was ginormous 
So was the SEED...



In the search to show you how big the seed is, MS held it in her hand, sat it by a teacup, next to her lens and dropped it in a cup... Alas, I have no photo of the avocado because Bob gave it way before I could snap it.

To see past post on our click on AVOCADO.

I'm impressed! Never saw one that large either.

Creative shots of the great seed.

Terri Buster said...

Wow- that must have been a humongous avocado!

Cranberry Morning said...

My goodness! What a huge avocado that must have been! Did your roof get damaged when it fell? Teehee. It must have a tasty one, too.
Happy November to you! Have a nice day and weekend, too.

I have never seen an avocado that huge before, nor a seed that looks like that. It looks like a sickly brain!
I'll bet it was truly delicious though. Bacon, lettuce, tomato and avocado....yummo!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

You sure do grow them big!

Susannah said...

Bob has a special way with plants! That is huge! He should grow a giant pumpkin....maybe!

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

Oh my goodness,that is huge.

Ginny said...

We both totally agree that it looks like a BRAIN! Paint it light pink and it would have scared away every kid in the neighborhood last night. Will you plant it? I HAVE to think of the giant avocado it would produce, it would be a monster. LOVE your harvest header!

LC said...

I agree with Sue and Ginny. Is there some creepy post-Halloween significance about the weird brain appearance of your monster (mutant) seed?

barbara l. hale said...

That is one heck of an avocado! Almost as big as my monster cabbage. Wow!

Ann said...

Holy smokes, that's one humongous seed

Chatty Crone said...

That was the seed? That was huge.

SquirrelQueen said...

Yikes, that is one giant seed. If the seed was this big the avocado must have been a monster.

I have to agree with the others that it does resemble a brain.

George said...

I've never seen an avocado seed that large. I would have loved to see the avocado itself.

EG CameraGirl said...

I wonder how big the avocado tree will be once this seed sprouts and grows. Fee-fi-fo-fum...

Amy Burzese said...

Man, Bob knows avocados, doesn't he!

Mersad said...

Wow, that's big. I only know the usual small seeds you pluck out of the avocado!

DawnTreader said...

I'd better not even write what I think that looks like. Scarier than any halloween picture you've produced yet...! LOL

Grandma C said...

Not sure I can say WOW large enough for that seed.
I loved your Three Avomigo's on your other post. They are cute with the stashes and glasses. lol

Grandma C said...

I love your new header too!

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

After treading about this ginormous avocado, all I could picture was the giant bowl of guacamole it would have made and how great that would have been with nachos and salsa and sour cream.

Snapper II said...

I forgot I love your header art.

Snapper II said...

I don't know what happened to my comment but I love water in my carburetor.

Eva Ason said...

Wow! That is a big one.

I sure hope Bob had enough of the huge avocado . Some times you get more seed than anything else! That seed looks very unusual, not smooth at all.
