Ripe avocados will keep in the refrigerator for up to a week, sometimes longer.
Allow avocados to ripen on the counter. This may take a couple of days. If you want them to ripen quicker, place them in a paper bag. An avocado is ripe when you press the skin gently and it yields slightly to pressure. They keep best in the vegetable crisper because it isn’t as cold.
