Hi, The "Duke" avocados are in season at the Chaffin family farm. http://www.chaffinfamilyorchards.com/where-to-buy/
If anyone is going to the farmers market and buying any of the duke avocados, I would like to purchase some of the seeds. They are supposed to be a very cold hardy type.
Thank you.

I'd also like to have some Duke seeds. I sent the Chaffin orchards an email a few years ago, asking if they would supply me with some Duke seeds, but they never answered. This might be a better time to try that again.

I tried to order, but they refused to ship them, stated the fruit would go bad before they got to me. I might try again, after all the seeds are the most important thing, although I would like to try the fruit.
Good luck

I wonder if you could find the names of some of the markets that carry Duke avocados...perhaps someone at a market could save some seeds and send them. You could offer a SASE so it wouldn't be a burden to the person.
