BETTY'S TIP: Need some avocado advice? Choose avocados that are heavy for their size and don't have nicks or bruises. Store unripe avocados at room temperature and ripe ones in the refrigerator for up to a week. If you want to speed up the ripening process, place avocados in a paper bag and let them stand at room temperature for a couple of days.
