Don't Squeeze Your Avocado

Don't Squeeze Your Avocado

 
The best way to tell if the avocado you are about to turn into guacamole is ripe is to check it's button. The button is the little stem at the top of the avocado where it connected to the tree. If you are able to gently flick the button (aka stem) off the avocado with your thumb it should be ripe. The color where you removed the stem should also be that bright green you see on the inside of a ripe avocado.
