Ripeness is ultimately determined by pressure, color can sometimes be misleading as avocado “softening” can occur at a varying rate, independent of the color.How to expedite the ripening process naturally? Here is your Avocado Ripening Kit.To speed up the avocado ripening process we recommend placing unripe avocados in a brown paper bag with a banana (preferably unripe) for two to three days until they are ripe.Since both avocados and unripe bananas release a naturally occurring plant hormone called ethylene gas that acts as a ripening agent, putting both of these unripe types of produce in a bag together will actually trap the gas in the bag and speed up the ripening process. This is a completely natural way to ripen your avocado and in no way diminishes its nutrient content. We do not recommend any other method of ripening.
