I've had it sitting with an over ripe banana all day but it is no softer. I wanted to put in in fahita's tonight - any one know any magic tricks so I can?
Well banana was going to be my answer.Bump for Cadbury
put in brown paper bag at room temp preferably with a ripe banana
no paper bags unfortunately. Why didn't the banana work?
One day isn't long enough ime, either that or it's a dud avacado (I must read that book)Tbh, 2 days is normally best
Oh bu&&er. I got it yesterday and it came from the reduced bucket at Sainsbugs. When I picked it, it felt like it was nearly there but doesn't feel anything like it now.PANTS!
what type of avocado is it Cadbury?Some varieties with thick skin don't feel 'soft' and ripe but are in fact ripe inside.
Its a Hass avocado. I dug my nail in and it feels pretty hard inside too
Never buy an avocado which isn't even slightly squeezable.Mind you, a few can go rotten really quickly too.
lesson learnt thans for your help folks
Alas, they are a tricksy fruit.Actually they are, technically speaking, a berry. A sly and tricksy berry.
