AVOCADO Persea americana (Mill) of the family Lauraceae, Common Name: Avocado, Alligator Pear (English)
Avocados ripen in a few days at room temperature (faster if stored with other fruits such as apples or bananas, because of the influence of ethylene gas). Premium supermarkets sell pre-ripened avocados treated with synthetic ethylene to hasten the ripening process.

A ripe avocado yields to gentle pressure when held in the palm of the hand and squeezed. The flesh is prone to browning and turns brown quickly after exposure to air. To prevent this, lime or lemon juice can be added to avocados after they are peeled.
