As for the avocado, its degree of ripeness will influence the time of the cut, if we like to leave it in very small cubes we will have to buy it before it ripens, when it is still quite consistent; As at home we like to find the pieces at lunchtime, we have chosen to take two copies from the greengrocer, shooting mature.
