Avocados are one of the most beloved fruits, but they can also be one of the trickiest.

If you love eating Avocado’s as much as me, you know how hard it can be to time it out just perfectly. avocados can take forever to ripen, and then once they’re ripe, you better eat them that day, or they’ll be bad.

I’ve tried using lemon, and specialty containers to try and keep my avocados ripe for longer, and until now nothing has worked.

Recently, I came across a video on TikTok (yes, I know…) which showed someone putting their ripe avocados in water. They swore that my putting their avocados in water, it would make them last longer. Since then, I have been very intrigued.

I began to see more and more people trying this trend, and posting their own positive results, so now I have to try it for myself. I bought two avocados at the grocery store yesterday, and as soon as they ripen, I’m trying this hack.




I’m still quite skeptical on whether or not this will work, because I can’t imagine a wet avocado, but I eat the fruit enough, that it’s worth a try for me.

It also should be noted that in the comments, lots of people say they tried this trick, and it made the avocado mushy… That doesn’t sound so good.

Regardless, I am very thankful for Tik Tok teaching me a bunch of new hacks to try.
