HOW TO STORE
To understand how ripe the avocado is, you need to press the peel slightly: if soft the fruit is very ripe, if the peel, instead, is hard the fruit is unripe.
If you want to accelerate the ripening of the avocado, just put it next to those fruits that produce a lot of ethylene.
If already very ripe, the avocado should be either eaten immediately or stored in the fridge.
Avocado is a great substitute for meat and, for this reason, is widely used in vegetarian, vegan and raw diets.
It is a fruit that is usually used for savory dishes and one of the most famous is avocado toast.
