i find a huge variation in the beauty of each pit and from that form preconceptions about their potential. i think the “perfect” pits are the ripe ones but avocados are temperamental. the ones that seem squeezably soft and ripe sometimes are over ripe and black inside, prob due to rough handling.
there is a thin paper skin that can be quite difficult to remove from nice to eat but on the under ripe side.
here’s a pic of the quints which shows the variation
the pit on the right, the paper skin just fell off but the one on the left i won’t even try to peel because it will just bruise the pit
like this one!!
i’ve started the wait….
obviously three look pretty promising but the other two….well…..we’ll see!
of the original 5 most promising only one has actually produced a root…but it’s a waiting game…
