TIP- How to quickly ripen an avocado?
Hard avocados ripen at room temperature in three to six days. For quicker ripening, place avocados in a brown paper bag (or newspaper) and store at room temperature. You can add an apple or a tomato to the bag for even quicker ripening!
A ripe avocado yields to gentle pressure when held in the palm of the hand and squeezed. If pressing the fruit leaves a small dent, it is too ripe to slice, but is suitable for mashing. If pressing leaves a large dent, the fruit is overripe, and the flesh will have darkened and spoiled.
