I've heard something similar: Put the avacados in a brown paper bag, fold up the top, put in the cupboard for a few days. I was told the fruit rippens quickly for some reason related to lack of light/being able to breathe?maybe even "warm, dry place(?)" or else it was, "because I said so & it works, doesn't it?" Yeah, one of those!

I heard an old trick of putting them in a paper bag with an apple or other ripe fruit. I hear it's the chemicals given off by ripe fruit that cause other fruit to respond and ripen faster. It's worth a try.

It works. It's the gases emitted that hasten the ripening

Wrap in a paper bag or newspaper and put in a warm place like on top of a refrigerator.
