Avocados

Keeping avocados fresh can be a tricky endeavor. Most avocados at the grocery store are sold as unripe. If this veggie is not fully mature, the ripening process will be stopped if you place them in the refrigerator. Place these green veggies to ripen on the counter for several days before storing them in a plastic bag in the refrigerator to keep them fresh longer.

If you want to speed up their ripening, you can place them in a paper bag with an apple or banana because all of these items contain ethlene, a chemical that speeds up they contain a chemical (ethylene) that speeds up the ripening of surrounding fruits and vegetables. If you have already cut your avocado and are left with a half, it can keep for another day if it is wrapped tightly to prevent browning oxidation. People usually add on lemon or lime juice to slow that browning process.
