The Best ways to store the avocado
An unripe avocado can be stored for a few days to a week at room temperature. Ripe avocados can keep for three to five days in the refrigerator.
To speed up the process, you can put an unripe avocado in a paper bag along with a banana or apple. It works because these fruits have a plant hormone (ethylene) that triggers ripening. The paper bag traps the naturally occurring ethylene gases, so the avocado ripens faster than it would store on its own.
Store cut avocados in the refrigerator. It is important to note that once cut, the green interior of the fruit will quickly begin to brown. This doesn't have to be a bad thing, but it won't be very appetizing.
You can slow the browning down by smearing any exposed flesh with fresh lemon juice. After applying the juice, wrap the avocado pieces in plastic wrap or beeswax and store them in the refrigerator for two to three days.
Another way to store cut avocado is to immerse the pieces in water and place the covered container in the refrigerator for two to three days.
You can freeze the avocados. But it is important to make sure they are at their peak ripeness before freezing them. Unripe avocados will probably never ripen if they are frozen.
