    Avocado ripen unevenly
    I have choquett avocados. They ripen at the crown turning brown and mushy.
    Before the rest of the avocado. My wife tells me I'm bringing them down too early
    In October. Presently you just have to cut away the mushy part, the rest of the avocado

Never put hard avocados in the refrigerator because they will never ripen. Ripe avocados will keep in the refrigerator for up to one week.
