We have a couple of avocado trees in our backyard. I knew nothing about them – when to pick the avocados (or even how – they’re really high up), when they’re ripe, etc… But thankfully Hadija, our house help, explained it all to me, so I have really been enjoying harvesting and eating them.
Of course, there are so many that I can’t possibly eat them all (as much as I’d like to!), so I had some friends over to pick some of their own.
After a few days of sitting on your counter, they ripen perfectly. And I’m not exaggerating when I say that these are, literally, the best avocados I’ve ever eaten!
