Reasons Behind Long Lasting Organic Food

By Bob McKinney

Organic food is grown differently from conventional food. Cultivation is tightly controlled in organic farming and the more traditional techniques preferred. No pesticides, herbicides and synthetic fertilizers are used, only all natural materials. They don’t allow non-natural techniques in farming – sewage sludge, irradiation and genetically modified foods are avoided.

They treat the earth with respect and cultivate it with care. He realizes that the land is alive. He recognizes that a lot of nutrients can be found in soil that is well taken care of and that keeping the soil healthy will also keep his plants healthy.

This philosophy makes the two different farming method poles apart. Conventional methods run the risk of draining the nutrients from the soil, and as a consequence, plants are frequently plagued by pests and diseases because of its less than healthy condition.

There’s no magic spell that makes organic produce last longer. No, the opportunity, right at beginning, was just better. To ascertain which of the farming method – organic or conventional – would produce longer-lasting plants, it is recommended that you yourself pick a crop from each method. Study them in your own home, so that you will know for a fact which one would last longer.

But don’t be hasty; don’t forget that only freshly picked produce will still contains most of its nutrients. It doesn’t matter which farming method was use, it applies to both. You shouldn’t let any produce you have last too long before being eaten.

For longer lasting tomatoes, purchase tomatoes that still cling to its vine. The vine will let you keep the tomato for a longer period. It’s applicable for both organic and non-organic tomatoes.

Regarding bananas, don’t buy those that are still green. These bananas may never reach the “ripe” stage; they have been picked too early. Bananas that barely have greens showing on the peels and are nearly ripe are the ideal ones to buy.

When selecting fruits, choose the ones that look healthy and fresh because they contain the most nutrients. And go for organic when you have the chance.
