This One Tiny Thing Will Let You Pick the Perfect Avocado Every Time
We love all of the creative ways you can have avocado on toast (natch); we adore avocado as a replacement for mayo and we’re simply drooling over quick and easy stuffed avocado recipes. We’ll even indulge in an avocado margarita and incorporate avocados into our beauty routine. That’s why we’ll take any trick to pick the perfect avocado every time, and this one tiny thing will help you do just that.
Reddit user q0__0p was kind enough to share a pic of the super simple, super helpful stickers that New Zealand grocer Freshmax uses to help shoppers choose an avocado that’s at the perfect point of ripeness for their particulars needs or tastes. Nope, this isn’t the squeeze test or the stem flick trick, it’s something new (at least to us) and very cool.
Showing three colors that an avocado can be, the first light green one gives foodies a peek at an unripe stage, then a darker green which shows what a “firm ripe” avocado will look like, and finally, the darkest green shows a “soft ripe” avocado. Allowing us to easily compare the pics to the fruit (yep, it’s a fruit), we can see that the avocado in the pic is “soft ripe.”
Again: So simple! So helpful!
