1.  Avocado should be soft to touch but not mushy.  If firm it is under ripe.

2.  The small brown stem on the end should come off easily.

3.  You should see green under the stem.  If brown or yellow under the stem it is not ripe.

4.  If rattles it is over ripe.

5.  Placing in the refrigerator will slow the ripening process.

6.  If unripe, place in a brown paper bag to increase ripening process.

7.  Ripe avocados will keep in the refrigerator about two days
