Firmness is the best indicator of ripeness. With your hand, apply a gentle pressure to the avocado. If it is hard and/or very green in color, it is not ripe. Leave it on your counter at room temperature to ripen. Check avocados daily. Once the avocado yields easily to gentle pressure, it is ripe and ready to eat.
The Apeel Limes will arrive ripe and ready to be enjoyed. You will be able to tell their ripeness by their fragrance and a slightly heavier weight in hand. This means they are getting juicier. You can also give them a slight squeeze and the skin should give ever so softly.
Cut the avocado in half, remove the pit, slice or dice the flesh and scoop it out using a spoon.
Leave unripened avocados on the counter for a couple days then place in the fridge before over-ripening to keep fresh. Limes should be stored in your fridge’s crisper drawer until ready for the party to start.
Remember, your avocados and limes are protected by Apeel to last 2 times longer. Apeel is made of plant-derived materials — lipids and glycerolipids — that exist in the peels, seeds, and pulp of all the fruits and vegetables we already eat. Apeel is not a GMO.
