But one savvy shopper has revealed a nifty trick that will help you select the perfect avocado every time.

TikTok user MommyLifeSquad took to the social media site to share a video in which she explained that you can tell how good the fruit is by removing the “cap” from the bottom.
“Pinch off the cap,” she began, before adding: “If it’s white, it’s rotten.”
“If brown, it’s about to go bad,” she continued.
What you want to look out for is an avocado that’s green beneath the cap.
“If it’s green, it’s perfect,” she concluded.
Viewers were quick to praise the woman for the hack, with one writing: “wow. I learned something new today.”
