Artificial ripening of fruits
Q: How can we find out if a fruit has been artificially ripened? Is there an alternative to stop eating them altogether?
A:Most fruits available all the year around besides their original season have been ripened chemically. You must wash the fruits very well under running water before consumption and can be peeled if possible. It is also advisable to consume seasonal fruits which are much nutritive and have better taste than those chemically ripened.
