How Do You Check An Avocado For Ripeness?
I am not having much luck with (supermarket) avocados.I bought two on Thursday,the first was rock hard on that day,but the second was just ripe enough.How do you check them for ripeness?Please don't tell me to squeeze them, and that they should give like soft butter,that doesn't work.All the ones I tried were rock hard,but some (when I used them) were soft enough to eat,so it's a bit of a lottery.I tried a suggestion,of putting them in a plastic bah with a banana,the gas given off by the fruit, is supposed to quickly ripen the avocado.Sometimes it's OK, and other times the avocado goes rotten quickly.
Please help me,as I do love avocados.

Well, I have followed the suggestions,namely to squeeze(gently) the top of the avocado, where it joined the stalk.
I* hyave two now that have a softish stalk end,so we shall see if this works.

Butt,I hope that it works?
