He also dabbled in real estate and construction before becoming an avocado grower years ago. His grove is organic and is a certified wildlife habitat. Gene is a natural born problem solver. He is one of three growers in the U.S. participating in a water efficiency experiment utilizing a satellite-based irrigation system. He is proud of the fact that he personally inspects every bin of avocados that leaves his grove.
