Gardening Miracle: Avocado Quadruplets

My oh my, imagined my surprise when I saw four stems sprouting from an avocado seed. This has never happened before until now, even with other seeds I’d germinated.

Life is beautiful.

Avocado Quadruplets
This avocado seed is a proud mama to quadruplets! πŸ₯‘πŸ₯‘πŸ₯‘πŸ₯‘

This is a Booth avocado seed which I obtained from the avocado that I bought at Hanoi during my vacation last year. Booth avocado is round in shape and is double/triple the size of Haas avocado.

I am guessing this scenario only happens because the seed is larger (higher probability to sprout more than 1 from one seed) or maybe I’m lucky? πŸ˜› I have another Booth avocado seed which had sprouted much earlier with one stem, and I have two more Booth seeds which have just sprouted and I can see that they have 2 babies each… I mean stems!

I will be writing about my Hanoi travelogue soon and do stay tuned because I will be revealing more about this Booth avocado (e.g. where I buy, price & texture). I share here where I bought the Booth avocado in Hanoi, the price and texture.

I am not sure what to do with this quartet of avocado seedlings. Do I separate them or put them together? Hmmm, I guess I’ll do what I usually do which is transplant into a big pot, altogether. I need to think wisely how to reconfigure my garden to add another big pot as I have run out of space at the sunny area.

Avocado Quadruplets 3 Weeks Later
Here’s the progress of the avocado quadruplets 3 weeks later (19th February 2020). Of the four, one is stunted, while the other three are growing vigorously. Basically, their growth rate is exactly that of the top most photo above, with the right most the tallest, the one beside it the shortest, and so on.

Super grateful for this rare and unique miracle. Thank you nature! ❀️

      Hi Hafiz, yup cool, right? However, after transplanting it to a big pot, only twins survived. Happy to report that they are doing awesome! I will update this post with its latest development. Do come back later.

      I think once you fall in love with avocado, you can’t fall out of it, only falling deeper and deeper. πŸ˜›

    Do your avocado seedling manage to grow into mature plant and then to bear fruits? I am interested to know whether fruit bearing for avocado in Malaysia?

      Hi Kevin, yes my avocado seedlings manage to grow to larger sizes. Because I grow them in pots, they don’t grow as large as a normal avocado tree. I am waiting for them to bear fruits. Malaysia’s weather is suitable for growing avocado trees. I’ve seen many cases where they have bear fruits. Btw, where are you from?
