If you've ever wondered how long fruit lasts, then this easily digestible flowchart will make sure your bananas never turn to mush again. The chart showcases the short life span of an apple, strawberry, orange and a banana, once they have been sliced into. Apples fare the best in this survey, taking a full week to decompose, whilst strawberries will only last three days before becoming totally inedible.

The chart also provides us with some handy nutrition tips. For example, did you know that oranges contain such high amounts of acid that they can be detrimental to tooth enamel over long periods of time?

This handy chart will provide you with information in bite-size chunks that will help you out the next time you're wondering why your fruit is no longer edible.
