Introduction: How to Ripen Raw Avocado

About: I love cooking and trying new recipes.

Usually fruit seller didn't sell ripe avocado because it easy goes bad. Then we bought a raw avocado. But it seem takes a long time to ripe. But, don't worry, I will tell you how to ripen a raw avocado just in a few days.

Step 1: We Will Need...

• Avocados
• Knife
• Tissue papers
• Tape

Step 2: Cutting the Fruit Base

Cut the fruit base like what you can see on the picture.


Note: It is good to wash the fruit first before cutting.

Step 3: Cover the Part That Had Been Cut

• Use tissue paper to cover the part that had been cut.
• Use tape to tighten the cover. Make sure it completely sealed.

Step 4: Done, Wait and Enjoy!

Your avocados will ripe in 2-3 days.

    Put them in a bowl of flour, cover them completely. They will ripen in about 24 hrs. Been using this method for more than 30 yrs.

    Good idea. Hope the avocado ripen with nice yellowish flesh and without any black spots in the flesh.

    Seems like a great idea! We have a tree at home, but sometimes we have to pick them green to prevent birds from eating them. It also helps if you just keep them in a dark area, but I will definitely try this.

    Put it in a bag with a banana. A day or two and it's good to go.

    Growing up in California, I never had an issue with Avocados. If under ripe a day or so on the window sill was enough to make them softer/ripe. Now that I live in land locked Alberta and fruit and veggie come shipped in, everything seems picked green. The problem is that even when they "ripen" they never lose that early "wood" taste. Thanks for the tip, I will be trying this asap!

    I’ve been wondering if an oven at 200F for a short time will do the trick.. say maybe 7 minutes in a pre heated oven?

    You can try that and tell us what will happen with the avocado flesh.
