Summer signals the arrival of fresh, seasonal produce, which promises eating at its finest. Sometimes that produce isn’t as ripe as you need it to be.
Some produce that has traveled a great distance is picked while still green and won’t be ripe when it reaches the store. For some fruits, you can speed up the ripening process at home.
Common fruits that can be ripened at home include bananas, cantaloupe, peaches, pears, pineapples and tomatoes.
