Avocado is the best food for babies as it is highly nutritious and is essential for the baby’s brain and physical development. If you are unfamiliar with selecting a ripe avocado, this article will surely help you. Avocado color does not always indicate ripeness. So just follow these steps to pick the best-riped avocado.
Step 1- Check the outside color of the skin of the avocados for any that are darker in color than the others. These may be riper than Hass avocados with lighter skin. If the outer skin is very much darker compared to others there is a chance that fruit may be bruised.
Step 2 – Place the avocado in the palm of your hand.
Step 3 – Gently squeeze without applying your fingertips.
Step 4 –If the avocado yields to firm gentle pressure you know it’s ripe and ready-to-eat. If the avocado does not yield to gentle pressure it is considered still “firm” and will be ripe in a couple of days. If the avocado feels mushy or very soft to the touch it may be over riped.
If you want your avocados to ripen at home, you can fasten the process by placing them in a brown paper bag and not in the refrigerator. Check regularly for ripeness. It’s really that simple. Choosing the perfect avocado takes a little bit of practice.
