The avocado is a native of Mexico and the central Americas. It is now cultivated all over the world wherever there is a Mediterranean or Tropical climate available. The fruits will ripen over about 2 weeks if held at room temperature Commercially the fruits mature on the tree, but ripen after harvest. this process can be manipulated using heat and ethylene to stimulate and control the ripening process. Judging maturity on the try is normally done by measuring dry matter % and picking once this reached 23%.
