Welcome to the RIPE Pen website!
The Ripe Pen is an amazing little device that helps to determine if fruit is ripe and ready to eat. Traditional methods of smelling and feeling and watching for the right color are to subjective. They are not accurate enough, especially with hard skin fruit like cantaloupe and avocado.
Using the Ripe Pen provides a consistent, measurable method of confirming that fruit is ready to eat. It can be used countless times and will last for years. A spring loaded probe indicates texture of the fruit, by the degree of spring-back after injection.
The Ripe Pen is minimally invasive so that the fruit can continue to ripen.
How often do we cut open an unripe or over-ripe cantaloupe, avocado, peach or pear and then throw it out ?
The Ripe Pen was invented in an attempt to reduce food waste, get more value from groceries and taste fruit the way it should taste.
"Since inventing the Ripe Pen, I have been able to enjoy every fruit I have bought at its peak of flavor. I know you will appreciate the benefits of theRipe Pen but most of all, you will enjoy eating ripe nutritious fruit at its best."
Hugh Johnson, Inventor
