A) Don’t pick them. They won’t ripen until you do, so if you leave them on the tree they’ll stay fresh.
B) scoop ripe avocado flesh into a blender, mix with salt, put in airtight plastic bags, and freeze.
Well, these are two pretty bad advises, as far as I am concerned.
As for A) : If you don’t pick them you won’t be able to eat them.
As for B) : Plastic and use of electricity will do neither you, the avocados or the environment any good.
Avocados grow here. The areas around Cútar, Macharaviaya, Velez-Malaga, Benamargosa, Benamocarra and Iznate is bursting with them. Soil conditions and climate make it possible. It’s one of the very few places in Europe where they do. (But even if they have planted them in Spain since the early 16th century, avocados actually originally come from Mexico.)
· Avocados are fruit.
· Avocados have no cholesterol.
· Avocados contain 30% easily digestible oily fatty acids and approximately 70% water.
· Avocados are bursting with nutrients: vitamins, A, B-complex, C, E, H, K, and folic acid, plus the minerals magnesium, copper, iron, calcium, potassium and many other trace elements. They provide all of the essential amino acids, with 18 amino acids in all, plus 7 fatty acids, including Omega 3 and 6. Avocados contain more protein than cow’s milk.
· Avocados are said to icrease your libido. Just like cava, almonds, vanilla, ginger, cinnamon,pepper, garlic, nutmeg, chocolate (and frog legs!).
So don’t leave them on the trees. Forget about the freezer. Don't store them. Just eat them.
