Rollinia Ripening Pro Tips
Rollinia is shipped just before peak ripeness. It is ripe when it is soft to the touch and an imprint is left when pressure is applied to it. Once your rollinia is fully ripe, you can store it in the refrigerator for a few days. This will slow down the ripening process and help to preserve the fruit's freshness. The color of the skin may darken from green to yellow (and even black if exposed to the cold), however this will not adversely impact the fruit. The most common way to consume is to break it open and consume the white flesh. DO NOT eating the seeds inside.
