Apeel Sciences is out to solve the frustration of avocado lovers with a new process that makes the super fruit stay ripe for twice as long. With this new option, you'll never have to play the risky game of figuring out when your avocado has reached peak ripeness again.

Apeel Sciences is a Bill Gates-Backed startup based in California. In an effort to stem food waste, the company has come up with a way to make avocados stay ripe for twice as long. This method involves mixing a recycled plant material called Apeel with water and then using the mixture to coat avocados or any other produce. The mixture thus acts as a second skin to help improve the quality of produce and slow spoilage.

With food waste becoming a growing consumers among consumers, Apeel Sciences has found a clever new way to ensure less avocados end up in the trash.
