Really this whole area has an abundance..during certain times of the year you can drive on a certain street and people have tables out with an "honor system" for avocados..like 12 for $1.. Kids sell them along with lemonade! And I don't like them! Typical....now if only I had a chocolate tree....sigh!
    dang woman, I pay $2 for 1 avocado half the time they're hard as a rock, the other half they are all mush. heavy sigh
    Life is like a box of chocolate covered

    @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!

    @cali~jenn when my grandma was alive..sigh... We used to send her a big box of avocados in Montana. She put them in her root cellar and they lasted a really long time.. You are welcome anytime...no avis now..but won't be long! The trees alternate every other year for a really heavy crop...Bears love them too!

    Apple seeds contain cyanide. This is why they are poisonous to dogs. I'm sure a few won't hurt them, but I wouldn't overdo it.
    Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are like us." Ask the experimenters why it is morally okay to experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are not like us." Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction. ~Charles R.

    @Angievelvet Oh yeah Paige isnt a fan of it either. Was Sierras first food and her fav still to this day. With Paige I hide it in fruits, she isnt much on veggies aside from sweet potatoes, and squash. She no longer gags on green beans but didnt get excited to eat them either. Have to hide all this stuff in applesauce or squash. haha Too bad too they say avocados are the best/healthiest baby food there is.
