How can you tell when an avocado is ripe?
Sometimes it seems as though you need a crystal ball to know whether your avocado is ripe - and there's few things more disappointing than preparing your avo only to find it is too hard or past it's best 😣
So how can you tell when your avocado is perfectly ripe and ready to use?
Aside from the classic 'squeeze and see' (which can be a little unreliable and may also bruise your avocado flesh) you can also look at the cap of the avocado, where the stem would have been.
If this can easily be removed and the flesh underneath is dark green to brown, this is a good indication that your avocado is ripe and ready to use. However, if the cap is a little resistant to coming off, you should wait until it loosens before enjoying.
