Fruit Preserver / Fruit plate

Fruit Preserver

If there anything can help the fruit stay fresh without electricity? The fruit preserver can reduce the C2H4 and CO2 in the air. Fruits in the plate can stay fresh for a long time.C2H4 accelerates the ripening and senescence of fruits stored with it. C2H4 produced by the injured fruit tissue triggers a broader ripening response. Bacteria will multiply rapidly throughout the rotten fruit. If there is a shortage of O2, it is difficult for bacteria to survive. Put the activated carbon in handles on the side of the plate, C2H4 and CO2 will be absorbed. The plant under the handle reduces CO2 and generates O2. The gap can make the air fresh.
