|Description:||This image depicts a grouping of Haas avocados that had been arranged in a large stack in an Atlanta, Georgia farmers market. These appear to be ripe enough to eat, and were marked with a sticky tag indicating their unique name, and computerized code to be used at check-out when they’d be priced and tallied with other accompanying groceries. Their dark brown color indicates their level of ripeness, for these are forrest green in color before ripening.|
