Avocado

Avocados are tropical fruits that are cultivated on tropical trees. Avocados are available in a variety of colors, from green to practically black. Avocados are available in over a hundred varieties. All year long, avocados are available. Salads, guacamole, sandwiches, and as a garnish on Mexican cuisine all feature them. Avocados are creamy in texture and have a mildly nutty flavor. They are available in pear or spherical shapes and weigh between ounces and pounds. Hass avocados have a nearly black skin that is slightly rough and pebbly. It has a delicate golden yellow flesh. The Fuerte avocado is a pale green fruit with a smooth exterior and pale green flesh.

Purchasing:

Avocados are harvested before to ripening. Seek out fruit that is free of imperfections. When squeezed slightly, a ripe avocado will yield slightly.

Storage:

Avocados keep well in the refrigerator for two to four days when ripe. Place in a paper bag at room temperature for 2 to 4 days to ripen. Avocados discolor when they are chopped and exposed to air. Applying lemon or lime juice to the surface will assist in preventing discoloration. Refrigerate a well-wrapped cut avocado. To use, you may need to remove some of the discoloration.

Tip:

  • To avoid discoloration, add avocado to salads and sandwiches last minute and wrap in plastic wrap until served.
  • Prepare the guacamole with the remaining ingredients and add the avocado immediately before serving. Guacamole contains lime juice, which aids in its preservation.
  • To avoid discoloration, brush avocado slices with lemon or lime juice.
