Did You Know?
Ripe avocado will keep in the refrigerator for two to three days. In general, you should serve avocados as soon as possible after cutting them, because once avocado becomes exposed to the air, it will immediately start to turn brown. Sprinkling citrus juice or vinegar over it will retard this process.
Fresh avocados do not freeze well. For best freezing results, mash, puree or make guacamole with your ripe fruits.

     * Select ripe, softened fruit, then peel and remove the seed.
    * In food processor or with blender puree, mash or make guacamole.
    * Pack into small freezer containers. Squeeze enough lemon or lime juice to cover the top to prevent browning.
    * Seal container and use within a two months.
