How to Prepare & Store

How can I store avocados?
Uncut ripe avocados can be refrigerated for a few days. Once cut, lemon juice and vinegar can be used to stop from browning or puree with lemon juice and freeze.

How to store your avocado

  • Uncut ripe fruit can be refrigerated until eaten, but limit this to two or three days.
  • Cut avocado can be sprinkled with lemon juice, lime juice or white vinegar and placed in an air-tight container in the refrigerator. They should be eaten within a day or two. If the top layer goes brown, you can simply scrape this off and you’ll find the flesh underneath is perfectly fine.
  • Avocado can be pureed with lemon juice and frozen for up to four months.

How do I stop avocados going brown when I cut them open?
There are a number of ways to combat oxidisation on the freshly cut flesh of avocados: store in an air tight container or cover the flesh in lemon juices or wrap in glad wrap.
