If you’re anyone who’s anyone on Instagram, you’ve undoubtedly seen the majestic, floral avocado rose.

They’ve become one of my little passion projects and my go-to whenever I’m looking to spice up a basic (pun intended) slice of avocado toast or impress friends.

They’re an art that take a ton of practice, precision, and about 83293 avocados to truly master (which, fortunately, is stellar for guac or avocado smash). To help, I’ve put together Avocado Rose 101 — your step-by-step guide to making beautiful avocado roses every time, including a video demo.

Enjoy and god speed. Once you give it a go, drop you creations in the comments below.

Avocado Rose — Steps:

  • 1. Find THE perfect avocado. Seriously, avocado roses are impossible if your avocado isn’t the right consistency. They should be perfectly ripe. If they’re too hard they won’t curl and adhere; if they’re too mushy they’ll look brown and turn into a goopy mess.
  • 2. Cut avocado in half.
  • 3. Peel off the skin.
  • 4. Slice the avocado across from end to end as thin as possible.
  • 5. Slide the avocado slices apart to form a fanned out straight line. Try to make this as long as possible, but all of your slices should still be connected and in-tact.
  • 6. Delicately curl the avocado around, starting with the tip. Continue to curl it around multiple times until you build a spiral.
  • 7. Gently fan the top of the slices out, so that the avocado forms “petals” and looks like a rose.
  • 8. VOILA! Season with salt, pepper, and a squeeze of lime. Enjoy.
