Quick Fact: Buying and Storing Avocados
A ripe avocado will yield to pressure when you press it firmly but gently. When the fruit is ripe, you can refrigerate for up to one week in un-sliced form. Once you cut the fruit, do not refrigerate for more than one1 day. When the cut fruit is exposed to air, it turns color because of the iron content (oxidation). Sprinkle some lemon juice to prevent color transformation.
