How Long to Store

2-3 Days to Ripen

3-5 Days in Fridge 

Storage Container?



Store your stone fruit in a closed paper bag at room temperature to speed up the ripening process. Add an apple or banana if you’re in a real rush. 

Stone fruits are ripe when they give off a sweet fruit aroma and are starting to get soft to the touch when light pressure is applied.

See a small soft spot or browning of the skin on one of your pieces of fruit? Don’t rush to judgement. Most likely that’s an isolated bruise and the rest of the fruit is in good shape. Cut it away and enjoy the rest of the goodness.
