Today's gift: prolonged produced freshness! Give your favorite veggie muncher an adorable-looking BluApple set and give the gift of longer storage life for fruits and veggies!
From the BluApple website: Ethylene gas is given off naturally by fruits and vegetables as a signaling mechanism in order to coordinate uniform ripening. However, once concentrated in your refrigerator or other storage areas, the presence of ethylene gas continues to speed up ripening and hasten spoilage.
The BluApple is designed to provide effective ethylene gas absorption for three months in a typical home refrigerator produce bin or storage container. The active ingredient does not "wear out", but continues to absorb ethylene until it has reached its capacity.
$9.99 at Lowes Foods, which is indeed based right here in Winston-Salem. I found it at the Sherwood Plaza location.
