Varigated Avacodo

Bushland, TX(Zone 6a)

Has anybody seen one,and if have will it stay or convert back to all green,this also was one of the fastest seeds I've germinated,the seed looked very funny,like it was already sending up a stem,when I cut the fruit in half.

I've had that happen with seeds of other plants where out of a batch some were albinos. While the seedlings were feeding off the seed itself they grew well. But eventually they depleted the food in the seed and died. With no photosynthesis the plant is doomed. Another type of plant I had which started out as albino eventually turned green but new leaves often still (but not always) start off albino. But I haven't seen this happen with avocados.

Yep that's what I thought as well,well maybe the leaves will all come out green after these and grow.
