How to tell is an Avacodo is bad?

Have you ever got one of those avacodos that has some black streaks though the yellow/green part? I don't mean a whole chunk is dark but . just streaks through out it - I have wondered this forever, and bought this huge Florida avacodo last night, and it was this way. I hate it when that happens, because I don't know if it is bad or not, but am always too scared to eat it!

It's still good just take out the black parts.

I have always wondered this. Sometimes,the avacado gods smile on me, other times, no.
Anyone know why this happens?

When it starts to get streaks in it.. the avacado is ripening up .. ( getting bad ) but till the thing starts getting completely brown.. just cut those peices off of it.. bc they are bitter. Other than that.. I been doing it for years.. and I am still here to tell you gals about it

Best way to buy an avocado in the first place is to pick them when they are still mostly hard - they ripen in less th an 3 days usually (they get soft). I never buy them when they are already really soft because you don't know just how long they have been ripe (meaning they will probably have bitter parts in them). You have more control on knowing just how ripe it is if you buy it when it's still firm.

If all they have at the store are ripe ones, then I go for the firmest I can find otherwise, I just pass on the really squishy ones.
