How to store avocados properly to ensure longer shelf life?  

Store avocados at room temperature until they ripen, usually for 2-4 days. 

Once ripe, refrigerate to slow down ripening and extend shelf life. 

Place unripe avocados in a paper bag with a banana or apple to speed up ripening. 

Keep avocados away from direct sunlight to prevent overripening. 

If only using a portion, leave the pit in the unused half to reduce exposure to air. 

Use plastic wrap or airtight containers to cover cut avocados, minimizing oxidation. 

Sprinkle lemon or lime juice on cut surfaces to preserve color and freshness. 

Check avocados regularly for ripeness, adjusting storage accordingly for optimal freshness.
