Viral Hack Helps You Know When An Avocado Is Ready To Be Eaten!

Viral Hack Helps You Know When An Avocado Is Ready To Be Eaten!


There’s a real science in getting the timing right to a perfect avocado. Cut it too early and it’s rock hard, wait too long and it’s a brown mushy mess. One mum has shared the now viral video explaining that the secret to a perfect avo is all in the colour of the tip. Did you know this trick?


TikTokker @mommylifesquad, says the secret isn’t about how soft or hard the avocado feels but rather in the colour of the tip.

“A trick that you probably didn’t know about Avocados!”  the mum wrote.

In the video, she explains that depending on the colour of the tip you can tell where in the cycle of ripening the avocado is at. “Pick off the cap,” the video says. “If it’s white, it’s rotten.”

“If it’s brown, it’s about to go bad.

“If it’s green, it’s perfect.”

Commenters were quick to praise the mum saying how foolproof this hack is.

“Thank you! I’ll try this when we’ll buy avocado next time,” one said.

”This works every time for me, I love it!”

“I found this out the hard way,” another stated.

One user however warned others to not do this at the supermarket as removing the tip will speed up the ripening process.

“DON’T DO THIS BEFORE U BUY cause they ripen quickly after & you don’t need to be ruining them,” they warned.

Have you tried this hack before? Did it work? Or do you have another one to share?
