Ripening avacados

I bought a bag of 5 very bright green avacados from Costco about 10 days ago.

I put them in a paper bag to ripen them. Slowly but surely they ripened. The problem is they donít have much flavor! 😔

Maybe Iím not letting them get ripe enough? This is the way I always ripen my fruit.

Is there something different I should be doing? Iím disappointed in my delicious green friends.

I just put them in a bowl on my counter and they ripen within a few days. I've never noticed them not having taste!

They should be black and "give" a little when you squeeze them.

i think we've had this discussion on PT before....*I* never thought that avocados had much taste. (that's why you have to add tomatoes, garlic, onions, lime juice, and tobasco to make guac!

Put them in a paper bag with a banana. As a banana ripens it gives off gases that will ripen the avocado.

Hmm, when I buy mine (and it's no more than 2 or 3 because I can't eat them that fast before they start to turn rotten!), I just have to sit them out in the open on the kitchen counter too. They always ripen faster than I'd like, so I make sure I try to eat up as many as I can so as not to waste food. Don't know why yours wasn't flavorful. I can taste the flavor of mine.
