Storing firm in order to ripen: 68-75°f

Storing ripe: 40-42°f

Avocado ripeness is not always indicated by the fruit’s color. To determine ripeness, place avocado in the palm of your hand and gently squeeze. Refrain from applying pressure with your fingertips as this can cause bruising. If the avocado gives to firm gentle pressure, then it is ripe and ready to eat.

If you follow these steps and the avocado does not give to gentle pressure, it is considered “firm” and will ripen in a couple of days.

Firm = 4-5 days to ripen at room temperature

If an avocado feels very soft and almost mushy to the touch, it may be considered overripe or unsafe to eat.

To slow down the ripening process, place ripe avocados in the refrigerator.

If you have half an avocado leftover, keep the pit attached to that side and seal in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator until later use.

Firm = 4-5 days to ripen at room temperature

Ripe = good for 3-5 days in the refrigerator
