Question How can you tell if

an avacado is ripe???

I learned the hard way you do NOT stick them in the fridge
 
and even after I left ithe next one on my counter for a few days to soften, it never did - hard as a rock when I cut into it!
 
So help me please someone, anyone!

Yeah I asked the first question on here!

No Idea. I've only bought 2 or 3 and I guess I just got lucky.

They are really soft when you squeeze them. Putting them in a brown paper help them to ripen faster.

You can ripen most fruits that way.

A paper bag will help it ripen quicker (on the counter) and it should give a little and feel soft when it's ripe. (I grew up in So. Cal with an Avacado tree in our back yard
 
).
