@BruceP $2 a piece in season? Guess there is something great about living here, although I dont get them free either. (need to go visit @JAKEISGREAT!) I think on sale they go for about a dollar here thankfully. As for a recipe I DO have the best one ever, that I have ever made anyhow. Will have to dig it up and share on tastetestedrecipes.
@kazzy220 you can grow them indoors BUT you will never get fruit off them indoors. They have to be pollinated by bees and other avocado trees so even if you got it to grow outside the odds of having other trees around to help pollinate are slim to none. Sorry if I just ruined your party with that but better than growing this dang thing for years and never knowing. I am hoping mine gets good and pollinated here but who knows? My town has a TON of citrus and so do I, but not sure about avocados.
In case nobody has ever tried, they last a LOOOONNNNG time in the fridge. I never knew and then one day tried keeping them in there. Dont know why I never thought of it before. I leave them to get as ripe as I like on the counter (I prefer them on the hard side) then in the fridge they can last a good couple weeks if not more. Thankfully cuz they are so expensive!
