When it comes to keeping avocados fresh, the struggle is real.
The window between unripe and too ripe is a narrow one: Too much natural lighting and they ripen quickly. Not enough and they’ll remain too hard for that guacamole you planned on making for a snack. Bananas be damned, considering how expensive and in-demand they are, avocados are absolutely the mercurial divas of the fruit world.
However, one company came up with a savvy solution. As noted by Food & Wine , the Avocado Sock has arrived to answer our prayers. According to the site, the Avocado Sock is an “all-natural, effective way to ensure you have a perfectly ripe avocado.” And yes, these little guys look like socks. They’re knitted of organic Shetland wool from a 200-year-old Scottish mill in Alberta, Canada. Considering how well-crafted it looks, um…can we get a cozy sweater made from this stuff?
These little sacks come in four different colors — nutmeg, olive, pewter, and tusk — and retail for $14.99. So yes: In 2017, you can totally purchase a cozy “sock” made of the finest organic wool for your avocados.
