Short-term storage recommendation (7 days or less)
- 38-42° F/3-6° C
- 85-90% relative humidity
Store ripe avocados in the front of the cooler; green avocados should be stored outside the cooler.
Store away from flowers, fruits, and vegetables that are sensitive to ethylene and may be damaged by the gas. Exposure to ethylene accelerates ripening (softening); separate from other ethylene-producing fruits and ripening rooms.
Keep handling to a minimum to avoid bruising and skin damage. Check ripeness daily, using ripest fruit first.
