Bleah tasting avocados - signal end of life?
Hi all, I just purchased my first home with a very mature avocado tree growing in the background. I had always dreamed about having an avocado tree so I was very happy. The tree was probably planted sometime in the late 1940s, the previous owners and neighbors had raved about what great tasting avocados this tree had.. unfortunately so far they have not been so great.
Initially the avocados tasted a little bit watery and were actually sweet. At that time I think we were picking them too early, that was back in september. Now the ones we have picked don't really have any taste at all. Any thoughts? How do I improve the taste of my avocados?
Also, when do avocado trees reach their end of life, and what are signals. could it be the taste is declining because the tree is reaching the end of it's life?
