At OrganicSiri, we grow all our crops in our own farms organically without use of fertilizers or chemicals.
Fruit that has turned slightly yellow should be kept at room temperature for a few days to ripen. To get the most flavor out of ripe fruit, store it in the refrigerator and eat it within two or three days. Cut pieces of the ripe fruit can also be stored in an air tight container in the refrigerator for a day or two.
We grow multiple varieties in different stages in parallel at our farms, thus trying to make fruit available round the year. Fruiting is reduced in certain seasons though.
