Putting Avocados in a bucket of water will stop the ripening process?

Putting Avocados in a bucket of water will stop the ripening process?

I just received some avocados from the country side of Haiti and I didn't want all of them to ripen at once, so I grabbed a couple and placed them in a big bucket of water to test and see if that will halt the ripening process.

Will that work? stay tuned...

Haiti Eggs (Ze Peyi) wrapped in Fey Maskiti

In the Haitian country side, eggs are usually wrapped in Fey Maskreti (Palma Christi plan leaf, also called castor-oil plant) for safe transport to the marketplace.

The brown rope like thing that wraps the fey maskreti is "Pay Mayi" (the inner leaf of a corn)

haitian breadfruit

haitian breadfruit

Breadfruit in haitian is called Lam veritab, bread fruit is a multipurpose tree crop that is primarily used for its nutritious, starchy fruit.

Haitian Breadfruit or Lam veritab is becoming an export crop in the Caribbean.

Breadfruit (Artocarpus altilis) is a species of flowering tree in the mulberry family, Moraceae, that is native to the Malay Peninsula and western Pacific islands. It has also been widely planted in tropical regions elsewhere.

Breadfruit is a staple food in many tropical regions. They were propagated far outside their native range by Polynesian voyagers who transported root cuttings and air-layered plants over long ocean distances.

Breadfruit is very rich in starch, and before being eaten it is roasted, baked, fried, or boiled. When cooked the taste is described as potato-like, or similar to fresh baked bread (hence the name).
