“Many fruits and vegetables produce ethylene gas, a colorless, odorless gas, as they begin to ripen. Some foods aren’t affected much by ethylene gas, while others are extremely sensitive to it.”
I never knew that it was a natural gas that fruit and vegetables produce that causes this to happen.
One thing I have noted is that when you buy fruit and vegetables that come from large agribusiness farms, they have a particularly high water content and they rot much faster than fresh garden and organic produce.
In any case, it is good to separate the ethylene-producing produce from the non-ethylene-producing. There is actually a method.
