Re: The lonely Avacodo...
My wife recently read to me that avocados along with pears and bananas do not ripen on the tree, only after they are picked. So we have started a new routine and purchase only green avocados - often in a bag of ten - put some in the refer and some in the fruit bowl so that we always have a ripe fruit for however we plan to use it.
We always buy Haas avocados, those alligator pears from Florida just don't have the flavor we crave.
These three fruits will ripen more rapidly in a container, doesn't have to be a paper bag.
A day without avocados is like a day without wine is like a day without sunshine.
