Husband thinks son and I are odd because neither of us eat bananas or Marmite. I ate them as a child, but wasn't keen, which surprised my mother as they had been a real luxury when she was a child and virtually unobtainable during WWII which was still fresh in the minds of her generation.

I like bananas and will eat marmite but I prefer Bovril. I don't think there are many fruits I don't enjoy.

I love avocado. We used to have an avocado tree in our garden in SA. Enormous avocados on it. Bloody dangerous standing under the tree!

I only had avocado once and have never had the urge to eat it again.

You people are insane.

(Avocado by itself isn't good, but on a tortilla chip it's almost impossible to have enough. Fifty times that if it's in guacamole form.)

Insane in the membrane!

Never tried guacamole, so I couldn't say. Some people have on toast over here Slim. :shudder:

Homemade guacamole with ripe avocados, on tortilla chips. Only then can you declare avocados good or not!

Absolutely!!!

I suspect part of the problem here is that people don't actually know the difference between a ripe avocado and an unripe one. Firstly, supermarkets store them in refrigerated sections, which alters the flavour and secondly, they sell them as ready to eat when they are clearly massively under-ripe. Vile.

They are not sold refrigerated here. Ours travel all the way across the country, but that may still be shorter than the journey yours require?

It depends entirely where they have come from. They are also grown in Europe.

It's more the texture than the flavour for me. It's just.......I can't find the words.

i feel your pain, not with avocados but the texture of an under cooked carrot is appalling.

a poor avocado is pretty disappointing but a good un is a delight

The texture should be beautifully creamy.

It is the same with any fruit picked too early in order to travel..it never develops the proper flavour
