  • Instead of using a fruit ripening bowl, place green fruits in a perforated plastic bag. The holes will allow air movement, yet retain the odorless ethylene gas which fruits produce to promote ripening.
  • Exposure to direct sunlight soften tomatoes instead of ripening them. Leave the tomatoes, stem up, in any spot where they will be out of direct sunlight.
  • Ripen green bananas or green tomatoes by wrapping them in a wet dish cloth and placing them in a paper bag.
  • Bury avocados in a bowl of flour.
