Can you eat an avocado that is not ripe?

Yes they are, but you won't get the creamy texture and the flavor is not as good as a ripened one. Unripe, firm or green fruit can take four to five days to ripen at room temperature. This is due because Avocados ripen thanks to a gas called Ethylene.

Likewise, what color is an avocado when it's ripe?

Fresh avocados are unique from some of the other varieties of avocados because they can change from a dark-green color to a deep purplish almost black hue when ripe. Although skin color can help in the initial visual selection of fresh avocados it is not always the best indicator for ripeness.

How do you pick a good avocado?

Squeeze the avocados. If an avocado looks ripe, you should still feel it to test its ripeness. Hold it in the palm of your hand, and squeeze gently. A ripe avocado should yield to firm, gentle pressure, but shouldn't feel overly soft or mushy.
