The avocados that come in the boxes were happily hanging on the trees a few days before you receive them. 

A note ripening.

They will take a long time to ripen. Sometimes 10 days to two weeks. They may have been in refrigeration a day or two. The difference between our avocados and the ones you get in the grocery store is time spent in refrigeration. Most of the Mexican and South American avocados have been in refrigeration for a month or more. Even the domestic avocados (including the ones grown in California) will have been in refrigeration several weeks after picking. This effects how well they will ripen after they are removed from the refrigeration and the quality. We’ve had members emailing us in the past wondering what was wrong with our avocados, as it had been a week and they still weren’t ripe. A few folks even told us they threw them out! 

We’ve tried a few different things to speed the ripening process up over the years, without much success (bag and the banana or apple, etc.). Generally, just leave them out on the counter they’ll ripen just fine. Want to stop the ripening process, put them in the refrigerator.

As the season progresses the ripening time will shorten a little. They will generally ripen quicker the longer they stay on the tree. They will however, not ripen until they are picked.
