The challenge for fruit growers has always been, how can you leave fruit on the vine long enough to ripen and still be juicy when it arrives at market? This is the goal of Apeel Sciences a company whose aim is to eliminate gas and wax used by most commercial farmers. We have grown accustomed to fruits and vegetables that are devoid of taste simply because of their ability to withstand time and transportation. In so doing most produce is picked before it is truly ripe. Crops can be dipped in a solution called Edipeel created by Apeel Sciences. It is a product that has been derived from totally organic sources composed of grape skins after wine-making, stems of broccoli that have been discarded, banana peels and other fruit and vegetable waste. Edipeel creates an edible barrier that can repel pests and fungi during transport.
