• Ripe avocados have dark green to nearly black skin, while avocados that will ripen in 4-5 days are a lighter shade of green and ripe avocado should yield to firm, gentle pressure, but shouldn’t feel overly soft or mushy.

• To help the avocado ripen more quickly, place it in a paper bag with an apple or banana, which release ethylene gas that helps.
