In this way, how do you soften hard avocados?
Wrap it in tinfoil and place on a baking sheet. Pop itinthe oven at 200°F for ten minutes, or until theavocadois soft (depending on how hard it is, itcould take up to anhour to soften). As the avocadobakes in the tinfoil,ethylene gas surrounds it, putting theripening process intohyperdrive.

Similarly, you may ask, is it safe to eat bitter avocado?

Can you eat avocado before ripe?
If it gives slightly, it's likely ripe andreadyto eat. However, if squeezing leaves a smallindentation, itmay be too ripe for slicing and willwork bettermashed. The fruit is overripe and probably spoiled ifpressingleaves a large dent and the fruit feels mushy.
