The Ultimate Guide To Becoming An Avocado Whisperer:

1. Press gently at the stem (at the top) to check the ripeness of an avocado.
2. If it gives a little, it's ready to eat!
3. If it's hard, leave for 1-3 days on the bench and keep checking.
4. Speed up the ripening process by placing unripe avocados in a paper bag with an apple or banana for a few days.
5. Refrigerating a whole, ripe avocado will maintain the optimum ripeness for 2-3 days.
6. One serve of avocado is a quarter of a large avocado or a third of a small one.
7. One piece of fruit can go a long way. You can get several dishes from just one piece of fruit, making every meal better.
