  • 2 Hass avocados
  • 4 eggs
  • Dash sea salt
  • Dash pepper

Think you know Hass avacados? Here are some little-known facts:

1. All Hass avocado trees descend from a single "mother tree" raised by a mail carrier named Rudolph Hass of La Habra Heights, Calif.

2. It's a mystery which species the Hass tree actually descends from. Rudolph Hass patented his tree back in 1935 which died of root rot in September 2002.
