Skin color of the avocado
First, check the skin color of the avocado. A ripe avocado should have a dark green or almost black skin color. If the avocado is still green, it is not yet ready and will need a few more days to ripen.

Gently squeeze the avocado
Second, gently squeeze the avocado. If it is ripe, it should be slightly soft to the touch, but not too pasty. If it is too hard, it is not ripe yet, and if it is too soft, it is too ripe.
