How to select: 

A Florida avocado has a bright green skin that darkens slightly as it ripens. The flesh should give slightly to the touch. An avocado that is over-ripe will have wrinkly, sunken skin. One that is under-ripe will be hard as a rock. They will ripen within a few days if left on a counter. Once ripe, put them in the refrigerator to prevent them from over-ripening too quickly.
