Although it sometimes seems to impossible to tell exactly when the fruit is at it’s ripest.
In fact it has become a meme. One that you can look in to extensively and get a few good laughs. Even though everyone jokes about the difficulty involved it’s actually pretty easy to tell if an avocado is ready. If the avocado yields to firm gentle pressure you know it’s ripe and ready-to-eat. Ripe, ready to eat avocados may have a darker color but color can vary so it is best to go by feel as well as color. It will feel lightly soft but it will not feel “mushy” to the touch.Ripe fruit is perfect for that day.
