    ...and letters to the editor demanding a enquiry into the avo's crashing.

    More likely to build a wall around them as they are Mexican imports (illegal or not).

    Crispy critters and firefighting foam, mmmm! my favourite road kill.

    He would get that doughy young son of his to pick up any good ones first.

    I’m INSANE. I can’t walk past .69 cent beautiful Avos without picking up more! None were ripe and I need to find a few until these ripen. Didn’t matter. Still got hard ones. Seems they’re always either hard as a rock or you can push your thumb through them.

    I saw the kiwi but on your advice I passed. Too small anyway.

    Now I’m really getting scared. I have a full bowl of green ones and only one ripe. Off for ripe avo hunt today.

    Trump is embarrassing!!

    Better get into them, hate to see them get soggy.

    We will be getting a few avo's today to take home with us, so we have a head start on ripening up.

    Hehe, only just seen this. Hope you've managed to eat your way through some of them, at least, while they're still fine. At that price, it's not madness to stock up whilst you can - I'd do the same.

    As it happens, I bought four today, they seem to be almost at their best for eating. I'll find out from tomorrow whether this is another no good bunch!

    Hope you enjoyed your holiday in the West, and the avos ripened ok.

    Pity about the Shepard's ones; they look good.

    I keep stocking up. None bad so far. Season changing soon. Ready. I’ll over stock as I don’t like brown. So far, none tossed. A few not perfect but nothing horrid or toss worthy. Price is right so avo on!!
