How to ripen Avocado Hass Mexican
To speed up the process of ripening avocados, place the fruit in a plain brown paper bag and store at room temperature 65-75° until ready to eat (usually two to five days).
Including an apple or kiwi fruit in the bag accelerates the process because these fruits give off natural ethylene gas,which will help ripen your avocados organically.
Tip: The more apples or kiwi fruit you add, the quicker your avocados will ripen
Soft ripe fruit can be refrigerated until it is eaten, and should last for at least two more days. Refrigerate only ripe or soft avocados
The California Avocado Commission does not recommend using a microwave to accelerate the ripening process.
How to store Mexican Avocados
Ripe fruit can be stored in the refrigerator uncut for at least two to three days. To store cut fruit, sprinkle it with lemon or lime juice or white vinegar and wrap in plastic wrap or place in an air-tight container, then refrigerate. This will prevent it from discoloring. If refrigerated avocados or guacamole turn brown or black during storage, discard the top or outer layer.

Mexican Avocado Nutrition
Avocados provide nearly 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, potassium, Vitamin E, B-vitamins, and folic acid.
They also act as a “nutrient booster” by enabling the body to absorb more fat-soluble nutrients, such as alpha and beta-carotene and lutein, in foods that are eaten with the fruit.
Naturally Sodium and Cholesterol Free
Avocados are a Nutrient Dense Food
