How to store avocado?
To find out if your avocado is ripe, gently squeeze it and observe the color and texture of its skin. If your avocado yields under gentle pressure and has dark green to black skin with a bumpy texture, your avocado is ripe.
For ripe avocados, place them in your refrigerator for 2-3 days to keep them fresh.
You can leave the fruit at room temperature, or place in direct sunlight to speed ripening.
You can also place the avocado sealed in a paper bag with a banana; the ethylene gases in the banana will speed ripening. When ripe, avocados will feel slightly soft when squeezed.
If you’ve already cut into your avocado, you can use lemon juice or water to keep your avocado fresh.
