Bluapple Produce Saver Review: So we tried Bluapple which claims to prolong produce freshness. Buying two containers of strawberries we gave it the Weve Tried It test.
We placed one container of strawberries in the upper drawer of the refrigerator with a Bluapple ball and the 2nd container strawberries with nothing added going in the drawer below it.
Bluapple website product description: Ethylene gas is given off naturally by fruits and vegetables as a signaling mechanism in order to coordinate uniform ripening. However, once concentrated in your refrigerator or other storage areas, the presence of ethylene gas continues to speed up ripening and hasten spoilage.
The Bluapple® is designed to provide effective ethylene gas absorption for three months in a typical home refrigerator produce bin or storage container. The active ingredient does not “wear out”, but continues to absorb ethylene until it has reached its capacity. A One Year Refill Kit rounds out the Bluapple® ethylene gas management product line, allowing consumers to reuse Bluapples® and not add them to landfills.
Both drawers were untouched for ten days. When we took them out, both batches of strawberries were moldy, but the one with the Bluapple appeared to have more mold (photo on left.)
Bluapple says that the approximate storage life of strawberries without using the saver ball is 7-10 days. Their claim is that by using Bluapple you can extend the useful storage life of your produce up to three times longer. Which on the short end would give your strawberries 21 days.
We may have to try with a different fruit or vegetable, but so far, this product failed. 0/5 If you want to give it a try you can purchase the Bluapple on Amazon for $13.00.
