30 Bananas a Day!

Burying the mango in rice concentrates its ethylene gas, a natural plant hormone that causes fruit to turn softer and sweeter.

Where the rise is there is no air, so more ethylene gas around the mango.

It takes me around 5 days to get a coconut hard Mango ripen.

Before they where getting brown inside and I could throw them away. This works for me.

It also works for avocados.

Cool! Does it still work? Does it mater what kind of rice is used? You will need a lot of rice for a few boxes of mangoes :D

Lol! Feel that. Do what I did and get rid of all your pots and pans and unplug your oven.

Wouldn't a brown paper bag, a thick towel or a blanket do the same? I'd think so.

Usually, to fasten ripening I just throw a thick blanket above fruits boxes

Yes Jelle,  I still use it. I have found out that I have change the rice every two weeks, mold is getting in the rice.

All rice is okay.

ha ha I only ripen 3 large mangoes this way.

I had a dozen ataulfo mangos never ripen properly for me and go brown. I was using a couple different methods at once.  It really bummed me out.  After buying mangos for months and trying all kinds of ripening methods I have not really found anything to help bags, towels, different areas of house, leave them in their own bag, pair them with apples, bananas.  You just have to catch them on the right day by softness, color and smell.

Hundreds of mangos and maybe only like 5(all Kent) that I thought were truly good.  I feel like I win the lottery when I get a really good one.  I could eat 20 in a row easy if they all were like that....

And I live in California and can find some pretty decent stuff.
