How To Select

Unblemished avocados that yield slightly to finger pressure are ripe and ready to eat. If you select a harder piece of fruit, you can hasten the ripening by placing it in a brown paper bag and leaving it at room temperature for 1 to 2 days.

Usage Tips

Slice in salads, top sandwiches, omelettes, sushi or Latin influenced recipes or mash into dips.
