Blue Apple Logo FinalI don’t know about you but I seem to throw away a lot of produce that I couldn’t eat fast enough before it spoiled. I like to do my grocery shopping once a week and I love salads.  So often I buy what I think is the most fresh and will last through the week.  I hate when I go to my veggie draw on Wednesday and find that some of the items I bought didn’t even last a few days.  I recently found Bluapples®.

Bluapples® help prolong the life of produce by absorbing and neutralizing the ethylene gas buildup. Ethylene gas is given off by all living plants, especially fruits, vegetables and flowers, and acts as a chemical signal to speed up the ripening process.

There are three key elements to long produce life: a) temperature – keeping produce cold; b) humidity – using vented plastic bags to keep a moist, but not wet environment; c) ethylene gas management – using the Bluapples®.  Disruption of any one of these elements will cause premature spoilage.

I have been using the Bluapples® since I moved into my new apartment so about a month and I really have seen a difference in how long my produce stays fresh.  I like to clean and get my product all ready to use the day I buy it.  That way when I want a salad everything is ready and it only takes a couple minutes to get it ready or grab it to bring to work.   So last Saturday I cleaned and tore up some lettuce, onions, mushrooms and a few other items.  I ate my last salad on Friday – everything was still fresh – no brown lettuce! How nice it was to finish what I bought instead of tossing it.

What I like about the Bluapples® the best is their great price $9.95 for a pack of two which last about 3 months.  What a great value. I know I have thrown away more than $10 a week in product often! You can buy your own Bluapples® HERE online.

  1. I would love to give this a try! I Have used various food savers available, but want to compare!

  2. Hello, I don’t keep my food fresh that is the problem, I put it in zip lock baggies but that doesn’t do any good. I would like to give these a try as I buy a lot of produce. Thanks. Vicki.

  3. I wash all my greens and dry them thoroughly. I then put them in a gallon size ziplock type of bag with a dry paper towel to absorb any moisture. This usually keeps my salad fresh for about a week.

  4. I was all the vegetables, dry them well, then store them in baggies or a plastic container with paper towel in it and a lid.

  5. I have always washed, dried, wrapped and bagged my fresh veggies. Lately I’ve been having a problem with them keeping as long. It seems to be the humidity, possibly from such a damp summer.. I am going to rinse them in vinegar water next shopping day and see if that helps. I find if I put vinegar on a paper towel and wrap my cheese in it, it keeps much better.(I do keep that in a container or plastic bag too)

  6. I don’t always get around to washing my produce and getting it bagged quickly enough but this looks like an interesting product.

  7. I don’t do anything special other than trying to keep it stored in the humidity controlled drawers in the fridge.

  8. We eat it very fast and shop often.

  9. health

  10. I am a single person who always seems to over-buy at the Farmers Mkt. it pains me to throw food away so I find I am buying things that last longer to begin with. My ultra-cold fridge does seem to help but I have tried various bags, etc and been disappointed. Would like to try this, plus I love the name!! Thx for the possibility.

  11. for my herbs I use a Cusipro Herb keeper–keeps cilantro and other delicate herbs fresh for about a week.–I don’t go to supermarkets in my neighborhood, they are pretty disgusting and really overpriced
    (WAHI In NYC). I try to utilize the green markets which I hit about 3x’s weekly. I can get almost every
    thing I need through them==fresh fruits and veggies, breads, milk and dairy, eggs and meat.

  12. When I buy berries I never wash them until I am about to eat them. Keeps them fresher longer!

  13. cover it with suran wrap and put in fridge

  14. interesting. I’d really like to see how well they work

  15. I wrap it loosely in a paper towel and place it in an open plastic bag.

  16. Some items I wash, dry, wrap & put in the crisper others I leave in a basket

  17. I try to wash and dry them right away but it does not seem to help

  18. Limit how much produce I buy at any one time.

  19. keep it in the crisper in the fridge

  20. I have no suggestions on how to keep fruit fresh. That’s why I need this!!

  21. I keep it in the appropriate crisper or in my pantry depending on the type of produce and how it needs to be stored

  22. eat it

  23. Store in the crisper and sometimes I use the green bags, but not sure they work

  24. Would love to try these!

  25. I keep my produce fresh by putting fruits and vegetables that I buy into the refrigerator the minute I get back from shopping. I also eat the fruits and vegetables that I buy as quickly as I can, to reduce the risk of them going bad.
