Note: To keep your avocados from turning brown once it is sliced open, keep it from being exposed to oxygen. Oxygen is what makes it turn brown. You can keep it from browning by sealing it tightly in plastic wrap, squeezing a small amount of citric acid such as lemon juice or lime juice over the avocado, or by brushing a thin layer of oil over the surface. These techniques keep the avocado from browning and extend its use for about a day. For more about how to keep an avocado from browning, click here.
