Avocado - wet inside?

Anyone every come across this? I knew I should have been hesitant of .79 off season avocados.

I sliced it in half and the pit just popped out on its own and there was moisture inside. It felt really odd. They were only moderately soft, how I usually eat them and still in green inside.

      How much moisture are we talking about? I've had avocados that release the pit without any effort, and it's usually because they're quite ripe, but as for moisture, I haven't ever noticed any obvious droplets of liquid anything.

    2. I think it has to do with the variety of avocado. The avocados from my house don't have this. Not in season. The ones from my boyfriend's house are kind of watery. And they are in season right now...

        Well, the watery variety (or moister, softer textured, not as buttery) I think of as the Caribbean variety, but there are few California varieties that I haven't had, that may be more moist. So I think you're onto something.

      2. Aren't those the big avocados that have less fat in them? I prefer the normal ones myself.

        1. Sounds like it is not a "Haas" avocado which is creamier in its consistency (and oilier), but less watery. Could be one of the other varieties. Pay attention to what the skin looks like. Haas avocadoes are very dark, almost blackish and kind of have a ridged skin.
