FWIW - I eat homegrown avocados pretty much every day.

Do they not have a season there?  My tree survived the late cold snap and now has lots of little green fruit buds, but it'll be quite a while before they are ripe.

they don't have seasons there.

I have one avocado pit I've been able to sprout.  It looks sad on my window sill.  Now that it's warming up, I will pot it and put it on the porch.  It will never bear fruit, but what the heck.

My pineapple is still going strong in a pot.  That, too, will move outside once it's warm.

Like citrus, different varieties of avocado have different seasons.  If trees are chosen correctly you can have avocados in season year round.  Of course it helps to live where it never freezes (at least no freezing down here at sea level).

If you leave the seed in they won't discolor. So I would mash up several together, and vacseal along with the pit. Should refrigerate for a while.

Fresh avocado chunks, Japanese cucumber slices, plum tomato chunks and sweet Maui onion (think Vidalia onions) shavings, drizzled with homemade honey vinegar and EVOO.  YUM!
