The patented content of our BluApple Produce Fresh Guard absorbs ethylene gas to slow premature ripening of fruits and vegetables. It features the same ethylene gas absorption technology growers and shippers have used for decades to keep fruits and vegetables fresh between the farm and the market. It's safe for use in the refrigerator, fruit bowl or wherever you store produce.

BluApple Produce Fresh Guard is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was skeptical... But it WORKS!! It does exactly what it says it does: it extends the life of your fresh produce. My bananas have been in the bowl for a week now & they are still bright yellow with no discoloration. It's pretty amazing. I've put it one in my fridge drawer and my onion & garlic containers. Everything is doing great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BluApple: Well Worth Purchasing I have had BluApple for approx. 3 months. This product has made a noticeable difference in the fruits and vegetables. The extended life of the produce makes my trips to the grocery store less frequent. Huge bonus!!! Prior to the BluApple, I was having to throw away too many vegetables, which was just a shame.. I located refills at the Container Store and will have this product on hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good... I just started using these BluApples--one in my banana bowl and one in my fridge crisper. So far, the bananas are holding up well. They seem to stay spot-free longer than before. I wish I had found out about this product long ago and saved myself from wasting money on fruits and vegetables that went bad before I could use them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from BluApple worked for me! BluApple, states that you can extend the storage life of produce. I put one blue apple into each of my storage drawers in the refrigerator. For me it has worked big time. I keep all of my greens (spinach, kale, green onions, celery) in one drawer and everything else in the other one. There has been a BIG difference in their staying power. They didn't wilt or change color within ten days. That doesn't mean though that you should not use your produce immediately. However, if you have some quantity it will still have the vitamins and minerals you want. I recommend the product.

Community Q&A

Will the BluApple Produce Fresh Guard work in a filled fruit bowl kept on kitchen counter?

Asked by: GommaG
Not as well as in an enclosed space like the refrigerater crisper. In my experience, using the BluApple in a countertop fruit bowl resulted in uneven ripeness where I thought my avocados were ripe but inside they were hard as a rock! Overall, when it does work it also zaps the flavor. I do not recommend this product.

Is is safe around cats?

Asked by: Keltic1
Our BluApple Produce Fresh Guard is perfectly safe for use around cats. It does not emit anything, only absorbs the ethylene gas that produce naturally emits. Avoid allowing cats to eat the pellets inside the BluApple, but if they did, it would not hurt them. It would be like eating dirt.

How do you open these?

If you want to replace the packet, how on earth do you open them? I can't figure that out.
Asked by: pamtxmom
To open The BluApple to replace the packet inside, simply press the seam against any hard surface. BluApple will pop open. Replace the packet, snap together. You may find our product video on BluApple helpful, too:

A couple of Sundays ago - the night before back-to-school for my kids - I was checking things off like so many moms were doing that very night. Did the kids have all the school supplies they needed? Class schedules as planned? Would my daughter, starting middle school, find her way ok - avoiding mean girls and outfit angst? Could I possibly get everyone - all six of us - together around the table for dinner - at least for that first day of school - to recap over a home cooked meal? That, frankly, was the kicker. So I did a bit of scratch paper meal planning for the week. The list wasn't pretty or the menu that inventive, but mission was accomplished. Dinner got on the table. Kids noticed (no Hot Pockets or chicken nuggets out of the freezer!) and expressed their appreciation. Mom. Felt. Great. Now, how many more weeks left in the school year?
