If you have some unripe avocados that you want to ripen up, the fridge is definitely not the place for them. The cold air causes avocados to ripen more slowly. Leave your avocados in a cool, dry place, like on your counter in the open air.

But make sure to eat them before they get too ripe. There’s nothing worse than an overripe avocado. If you feel like your avocadoes are starting to get too ripe, you can pop them in the fridge to slow down that process.
