The best guacamole is made with creamy fleshed Hass avocados at the peak of ripeness.

Here’s how to pick ‘em:



1. Look for a forest-green fruit. Darker skin means riper flesh.


2. Cradle it in the palm of your hand and gently squeeze. Guac-ready fruit will give slightly.


3. Flick off the stem. If it pops off easily and what’s underneath is bright green (brown means it’s overripe), you’re good to go!
