How do you store avocados?
Before selling, avocados must be stored in a cool, dry place at 10°C and at a relative humidity (RH) of 85 to 90%.
We recommend that consumers store avocados in a fruit bowl, out of direct sunlight. Do not store unripe avocados in the refrigerator because this disrupts the post-ripening process.
If you store your avocados in a fruit bowl together with apples, pears or bananas, this will promote the post-ripening process. If you would like to store your avocados for longer or use them slightly later, then store them separately from other fruit, in your pantry, for example.
A ripe avocado will feel soft when you lightly press around the base of the fruit. If you want to store ripe (ready-to-eat) avocados for longer, then you can put them in the refrigerator, but for no more than a few days.
