if fruit still looks good and smells good, is it still good? even if it’s a week, sometimes two weeks old? i’m talking mostly apples, berries, and tomatoes. i’m nervous to taste it just in case it’s gone bad, but i really just can’t tell a difference! help?
I’ve had two pears (a pair hehe)for a couple of weeks and they still haven’t ripened!I’ve been keeping them in a paper bag with various ripening bananas. They keep ripening, so I have to keep eating them!
MOTH – yes, i do eat organic usually. not always, but most of the time. if i can get something at the local co-op or farmers market, i’ll do that, but sometimes i have to go to the grocery store, and organic there is just too expensive!!
and it’s weird because i have seen a tomato go bad… and i mean baaad… after just a couple of days, but i have three organic roma tomatoes that have been in the fridge for probably 3 weeks now and they still look and feel perfectly good! i guess i should just cut them open and go from there.
it’s still good, although may not be viable…. people have stored fruit like apples in root cellars for seasons, and they still taste fresh. It can still be edible/ fresh tasting, etc, but may be declining in enzymes, vitamins, etc. No expert though, lol!
