This is a problem I really have each time I want to peel them. Over the years I used forks, spoons and knifes but always the Avocado gets damaged as it is mushy, pulpy when I peel it and gets a mess. Is there any method than can I use to properly peel it or perhaps a tool developed for this purpose?. If there is a video or picture that can accompany the answer that would help me a lot.
In my experience, the most important part of peeling an avocado without damaging it is to first select an avocado that is perfectly ripe. A perfectly ripe avocado will yield to gentle pressure in the palm of your hand. Once you've selected appropriately, halve it lengthwise and whack the pit with a heavy, sharp knife and lift it out. Then use your fingers to gently remove the peel. If the peel does not separate cleanly, try it again with a less ripe avocado.
