Since I am an avocado lover and after I posted a pic of my precious avocados on my Facebook page, I realized that many of you love it as much as I do. That’s why today I decided to share with you some practical tricks and tips for avocado and how to store it.

How to Speed Up The Process of Avocado Ripening

I love avocados. But the thing is that during this time of the year, most avocados in the store are so green  and hard, that you could kill somebody with them. That’s why we- the avocado lovers, need a solution to this problem.

And our solution are ripe bananas. Since ripe bananas release ethylene- a hormone that triggers ripening in mature fruit,  placing one in a closed paper bag with the rock-hard avocados  speeds up the process.

I’ve tried it and it works. I’ve heard that apples are another fruit that releases a lot of ethylene, so it might work as well, but personally I haven’t tried it.

Which Is The Best Way to Cut Avocados?

Sometimes, people have a hard time cutting their avocados. The best way to do it is to actually cut it in the skin.

I saw this in one of the TV shows about cooking. What you need to do is halve the avocado, then remove the seed.

Hold one half, cut side up, in the palm of your hand.

Use a butter knife to slice the avocado, cutting through the avocado just to the skin.

Use a spoon to  scoop the slices out.

In case you need to dice the avocado, slice one way, then slice across. Once again use a spoon to scoop pieces of avocado out of the skin, then discard the skin.

The reason avocado gets brown, when you cut it and remove the pit is the fact that it gets oxidized. Since water is a perfect barrier against oxygen, once you place the avocado halves in water, they will keep their intense green color.

If you love preparing guacamole, you are probably searching for ways to keep it green. I know that you hate preparing it in the last moment, just so it keeps its beautiful green color. But the good news is that there is a way to sustain the green color and the solution is in this article:

The Best Way to Keep Guacamole Green


One thing, that a person who is a fan of avocados, should do in his life is try to plant his own avocado. Here i show to do it.

1.Wash all the flesh off the pit, pat dry and set aside for a couple days.

2.After the drying time, remove the skin and insert 3 toothpicks  into the pit equally distant from each other around the fattest part.

3.Suspend in a dark glass  with the toothpicks resting on the rim of the glass.

4.Fill the glass with water until the bottom 1/3 of the pit is submerged.
Place glass in a sunny spot. Change water every two days so there’s fresh water instead of stagnant.

5.Once you have a 5-6 inch stem with a couple leaves ), cut the stem down to 3 inches. It will take a couple weeks.

6.Wait several more weeks until you have a few stems with leaves, you’re then ready to plant.

7. Take a pot, fill with  potting soil . Removing the toothpicks, plant the pit roots down (pointy end and stems up), the top of it should be level with the soil surface.

8.When soil is dry, water.

9.If the leaves turn yellow, you’re watering it too much. If leaves turn brown, you’re not watering enough.
