Q.Avocado tree. Lots of fruit but never ripens

Zone 33914 | Anonymous added on July 14, 2020 | Answered

Hi: I have a beautiful avocado tree here is FL and there is a ton of fruit that looks full size, but when I put it in a paper bag to ripen, it never does. Looks still young and rubbery. There is so much on the tree and I hate for it to all go to waste. What do I do?

It may be the type of avocado that you have. Avocados take around 9 months to ripen fully, so if it is before this timeframe, then they will be far from ripe. Knowing when to harvest is not necessarily easy. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/avocado/tips-for-picking-avocados.htm
