Stringy Avocados, Why?
Does anyone know why and how to keep avocados from getting stringy? I have a Don Gillogly avocado tree which is about 5 years old. Last year it had about 5 avocados which tasted ok.
This year it had close to 40 avocados and so far, every single one had been stringy. (I hate stringy avocados) Did we leave the fruit on the tree too long? Is it because of the weather? Some of the avocados suffered from "Bloom and Rot." How long do you leave avocados on the tree before you pick them? Could the stringyness be because the tree is still considered "young"?
I don't recall the few avocados from last year being stringy, and as watery and tasteless as this year's crop.
