How do you tell if a Florida avocado is ripe
Ripe Florida avocados normally yield to gentle pressure. Furthermore, their peels usually stay green when ripe even though some will turn red or purple. Remember, mature avocados will take about 3 to 8 days after harvesting to ripen.
Flick the small brown stem off- if you can see green underneath it - I'd say, from experience, it is ripe.
