  • The black part would make me toss it, black is never a good thing when it comes to food

  • The only way to know for certain, is to taste it

  • It was probably over-ripe... I would probably scoop out any discolored parts and taste the rest. You might find it's bitter, or it might taste okay. If it tastes normal, then I think you'd be fine eating it.

  • It's a little overripe, but it wont hurt, and will taste better than if it were underripe.
