I bought an avocado a the supermarket yesterday. While eating some today I decided to search the internet for some nutritional information. That info wasn’t that interesting to me, but I did find this interesting: the avocado fruit does not ripen on the tree. When it is harvested it will ripen. If the fruit is picked once it reaches maturity, and will then ripen in a few days. This can be speed up by putting the avocado in a paper bag and speed up more if other fruit such as bananas are included, because of the influence of ethylene gas.
