This Avocado Sock Will Allegedly Perfectly Ripen Your Fruit
By Danielle Tullo -

Apparently the only thing you need to have perfectly ripe #AvocadoGoals is one tiny wool sock just big enough to fit your fruit inside. This is a real thing that exists and it's called the Avocado Sock.

It was created by Diane Sherwood — who formerly owned a catering company in Vancouver, Canada — after she would ripen avocados by placing them in wool ski socks in order to have ripe avocados to make guacamole. Sherwood decided to go one step further and create custom all-wool Avocado Socks.

On the Avocado Sock website, Sherwood writes, "Sometimes, the oldest tricks work the best, and the effectiveness of the Avocado Sock is no exception."

The company credits natural lanolin and warmth of the wool for expediting the ripening process, saying it "ripens avocados evenly and gently and faster than a paper bag."

It's definitely a solid gag gift for the avocado lover in your life and you can buy it for Dhs42 (15 Canadian dollars) on the Avocado Sock website. Or, you can always test out one of your own wool socks.
