Most fruit.


If you have bought an avocado, melon, pear or peach which is unripe, and standing on the window sill for a few days has had no avail, put the fruit in a paper or plastic bag with a ripe banana or tomato.

These fruit give out ethylene, when ripe, the gas parially-responsible for ripening fruit.

Your chosen fruit should ripen quickly, but remember, that in the case of pears, they ripen from the core out - so might be riper than you think, from a mere squeeze!
