    Is this a "normal" avocado?

    I purchased 6 avocados from a truck vendor over the weekend. When I opened one up, the interior looks like this (!!!):

    They are hundreds of these tiny brown threads about 1 cm beneath the avocado skin.
    The avocados were marked as "Tasty Avocado, Product of Mexico".

    Has anybody ever seen one like this? My first guess was that they are some sort of insect lavas. Any thoughts?

    That's what they start to look like when they're a little over the hill. No bugs; nothing to worry about.

    Oh thank you! - really didn't want to waste half dozen of avocados.

    No, they're fine. They're ready to eat, though; the longer you keep them the more and darker strings you'll see.

    You can freeze them if you can't eat them quickly.
