Why Avocados Shouldn’t Exist

How the avocado still exists in the wild after surviving its evolutionary failures remains a puzzle.

But once Homo sapiens evolved to the point where it could cultivate the species, the fruit had the chance to thrive anew.

Back when the giant beasts roamed the earth, the avocado would’ve been a large seed with a small fleshy area—less attractive to smaller mammals such as ourselves.

Through cultivation, humans have bulked up avocados so there is more flesh for us to eat.
