Avocados are botanically considered single seed berries. They have green skin, with a lighter green fleshy body and can be pear-shaped, egg-shaped or spherical. The trees often self pollinate, but human intervention is common in cultivation to maintain a predictable yield. There are roughly a dozen different kinds of avocados in the world.
A ripe avocado is a little soft to the touch but supple. Once ripe they tend to go bad fast. The flesh is very prone to enzymatic browning once exposed to air. This can be countered with lemon or lime juice. The flesh itself has a subtle taste and when it is the right amount of ripe it almost melts in one's mouth.
