Have bad luck with avocados. Most of the time I get lemons -- I mean, not good quality all throughout. Sometimes I wait for them to ripen forever, then when I open them, they have mushy, over-ripe parts and also tough, under-ripe parts, all in one fruit. I've simply thrown out quite a few already. Occasionally I'm lucky and get one that ripens quickly and is so creamy all over. But this is rare. The next one in the same batch is a lemon again
They're all pretty expensive too (imported from Australia or New Zealand) so grrrrrr everytime I throw them out.
Are there tips on choosing good avocado? is there a season for this fruit? Is there a time of year when one should avoid them? Thanks!
