    1-5 days depending on how long they have been in storage and sitting in the store. You need to learn to 'read' avocados, darker is closer to ripe, lighter and rock hard is closer to fresh, tender when press is ready and soft is not worth buying. You can slow down ripening by putting in the fridge.

    Depends on how firm it is, you can speed it up by putting it in a paper bag on the counter with an apple
