Ripening Fruits and Keep them Fresh All Week LongAlysson Toscana
As we are receiving excellent feedback from our organic fruits and veggie customers throughout South Florida, one of the biggest questions is how to keep our fruits fresh and ripe all week without having too much waste. Fruits, like Apples, Kiwi, Pears, Apricots, Guava, Mangoes, Peaches and Avocado, release a gas, called Ethylene. This gas is very important for many reasons, one of them is to stimulate ripening. Store these types of fruits in small groups of 3 to 4. Wrap them together in paper bags preferably or plastic bags (if you do not have the paper ones) outside the fridge for one or 2 days. Then they will be ready to eat and enjoy.
