& # 39; I had it like this years ago and still have no idea, & # 39; a woman remarked.
However, the mystery was solved, with Avocados Australia confirming that the pits are the result of an insect bite on the fruit.
Woody clumps appear on the inside of the avocado skin after the bug bites the fruit.
The bites can be seen from the outside when they are fresh, but after a while the spots can heal, making it difficult to determine which fruit has been affected.
However, the stones caused by the insect bites do not affect the fruit and the flesh is still safe to eat – although the stones may not be eaten.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Aldi for comments.
