Did you know about the fascinating relationship between ethylene and ripening of avocados? In my initial days in Experience Fruit Quality, I found out about the link between ethylene and ripening rates.

Ethylene, a gaseous plant hormone, plays a pivotal role in plant growing and ripening.

Avocados undergo a ripening process after harvest, typically lasting 4 to 7 days. During this phase, ethylene production within the fruit improves its characteristics.

Introducing ethylene gas into ripening rooms accelerates the ripening process. The strategic use of ethylene ensures the desired ripeness of the fruit in a timely manner. Understanding this relationship enables us to refine ripening processes, ensuring consistent quality.
