The perfect pick.
How could they be wrong when they feel so ripe? Picking out avocados is as simple as using your thumb. Avocados will be ready to eat when they yield to slight pressure. Go on and give them a gentle squeeze. They shouldn’t be too firm or too soft. But don’t let the color fool you, dark forest green or bright chartreuse, the color of an avocado isn’t always telling of its readiness! Be sure to pick avocados with their tiny wooden knot still attached as this will ensure that the avocado hasn’t oxidized yet.
