Have you spent hours gazing longingly at the overpriced avocados in the expat food shops?  Do you measure your salary in avocados per hour?  Have you gone to Shanghai just to visit the Avocado Lady?  

Fear not!  Just like boyfriends and tapeworms, you can get avocados on Taobao!  I usually get them from this shop.  Right now they are only 7 RMB / avocado!  They almost always have them for under 10 RMB / ea.  I've had good experiences so far.  The avocados usually arrive in Suzhou two days after I order them.  They arrive unripe and only 1 in the maybe 40 or so I've bought has been broken.  I'm sure they would have replaced it but my Taobaoing is not sophisticated enough to ask.  The main problem having enough self control to wait a day or two for the avocados to ripen.....
