Ethylene Producing Foods
Some fruits and vegetables will produce ethylene, a gas that initiates the ripening process. Ethylene can cause premature ripening in some foods, while in others it can actually cause damage. To reduce unnecessary spoilage of your produce, do not store ethylene producing fruits and vegetables with those that are sensitive to it. Refer to the following lists:

apples
apricots
avocados
ripening bananas
cantaloupe
cherimoyas
figs
honeydew
kiwifruit
mamey sapote
mangoes
mangosteen
nectarines
papayas
passion fruit
