“Bachelorette” star Andi Dorfman is the latest victim of “avocado hand.”

The reality star, who also appeared on “The Bachelor,” needed reconstructive surgery after slashing her fingers while cutting into an avocado last week. 

“Successful surgery! Tendons and nerves have been reunited,” she revealed on social media. She followed it with the hashtags #avocado and #hand, with emojis for an avocado and a knife.

A TMZ photographer caught her at LAX with her arm in a sling. 

She told the photographer it was “not my finest moment.”

The 31-year-old, who was “The Bachlorette” in 2014 and a “Bachelor” contestant earlier that year, is now wearing a multi-colored dressing to protect her hand.

Emergency rooms are reporting more and more cases of avocado hand, which most often occurs when a knife slips as someone attempts to cut open the popular fruit.

To find out the proper method for safely slicing avocados, Inside Edition headed to the New York restaurant Avocaderia. 

First, place the avocado on a surface, like the kitchen counter — and not in your hand. Slice it gently the long way until you feel the pit, spin the avocado around the blade of the knife, then give it a twist so it comes off in two halves.

After the avocado is sliced in half, take the knife and give the pit a quick knock and twist the knife gently, the pit will then be removed. Then use a spoon to scoop out the fruit.

If you do cut your hand, doctors recommend putting pressure on the wound and elevating your arm. If the bleeding doesn’t stop or numbness occurs, get to a doctor immediately.
