How to cut, pit, and dice avocados

  • Cut the avocado lengthwise around the pit or seed. Open the two halves to expose the pit.
  • Here are 3 options in removing the pit:
  • (1) Use a spoon to gently scoop out the pit, or (2) make another cut, lengthwise on the avocado that has the pit, cutting around the pit, making it easier to remove. (3) Probably the most popular method is to gently tap the pit with a knife until the knife edge wedges into the pit, without cutting all the way through. With the edge of the knife, carefully twist the pit out of the avocado and compost or discard the pit. Please keep in mind that this method requires care to avoid knife cuts. 
  • To make it easier to cut avocado cubes, before removing the skin or peel, take a knife and gently make cuts lengthwise and then crosswise, being careful not to cut through the peel. Using a spoon, scoop out the avocado chunks from the shell.
