Hey Forum,

Came across two videos

1) https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=iE3LNo2wXOA looks like discussing seedless avocado, can anyone that speaks Spanish provide a summary of this? Is it an explanation on how produce a seedless variety?

2) https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=rZQe8XwZF9A this video is on inducing blooming by girdling branches, I find this really interesting but am confused about about how the fertilization ie nitrogen, potassium, and boron plays into the discussion because of a possible miscommunication with the subtitle translation? Can you girdle anytime of the year to induce blooming?

Thanks for any help with these.

In the first video, they are discussing avocado trees that produce seedless, small fruit, due to male and female flowers, that are not opening at the same time.  From what they are saying, it also happens when A and B type cultivars are not compatible with each other for pollinization.

In the second video, their ultimate reason for inducing early blooming, is to take advantage of a longer harvest season, in other words, take advantage of harvesting fruit out of season.  Their talk about nitrogen, potassium, and boron, is basically to also help induce early blooming, and nourish the trees, since they are introducing a stress to the tree.  Ideally, I guess what they are doing is splitting up their trees' harvests, which is interesting, but also stressful to the trees.
