Apeel avocados are ripe when they have a slight give when pressure is applied. Press on the avocados and if they feel soft, it's time to eat!
If your avocado has ridges: this is a perfectly natural and normal part of the fruit. They do not cause any damage to the fruit on the inside.
If your avocado has knicks or surface cuts: the journey an avocado takes to get to you can sometimes result in some bumps along the way. Note that knicks or surface cuts on an avocado from the packing house is not an indication of bad or spoiled fruit. Your avocado is still safe and ready to enjoy. If the knicks or cuts go into the fruit, please let us know by sending a picture to email@example.com
