When are Bacon Avocados ripe?

    3 responses

Hello

I'm keen to understand when Bacon Avocados grown in Perth will be ripe. We moved into this house in November and now in March we have many huge green avocados on the tree. How do I know when to pick?
Thankyou

Avos are not usually left to ripen on the tree. When the stem/stalk turns a light lime green you can pick them and let them ripen inside.

An avocado grower told me years ago that leaving them too long on the tree affects next season's fruit.

Hi tb25

Bacon avocados in Australia is ready to harvest between June to late July. Most avocados don't ripen on the tree but, bacon is different. They fall to the ground when ripe. Some people with bacon avo wait for the first ripe fruit to drop to the ground before picking the majority of the remaining fruits off the tree. You can hasten the ripening of the picked avo by putting them in a paper bag together with an apple or banana conversely, you can delay the ripening by putting it in the fridge. If you're keen to know about avo ripening and picking times watch you-tube videos regarding the timing of avo picking. Watching and listening is a much better medium to clearly understand the subject you are after. You tube is full of them including when to pick your perfect avo.

Happy Gardening :-)

Avos usually lose their shiny skin and turn a bit dull.
Also, their stem (near the fruit), turns slightly yellow.

That's when I pick mine.
