Keep These Colours In Mind When Picking Avocados

Avocados are a very important food with which you can craft many tasty delights, but picking a perfectly ripe one can be challenging at times. Luckily — as one Reddit user brought to our attention — one crafty company has started putting colour chart stickers right on the fruit, making grocery shopping that much easier.

Unless you live in New Zealand, it's unlikely the avocados in your local grocery will have these exact stickers, it's still helpful to keep these colours in mind when you're out shopping. Of course, colour isn't the only way you can check for ripeness. Besides looking for specimens that are heavy for their size, you can always take a peak under the stem. If it's nice and green under there, you're good to go.
