I feel like this probably applies to what you are saying.
My whole life my mom bought fruit from Wal-Mart. I know how long fruit usually lasts, how long it takes to become ripe, etc.
The last two years I've started buying all of our produce at Aldi. The fruit never lasts. I bought a bunch of very green bananas last time we went
shopping. They were brown and almost soupy in three days! Wal-Mart bananas could probably take two weeks before they get to that point. We had ate
one of the bananas before they turned bad and the rest I had to throw in the freezer for smoothies and banana bread.
I'm not sure if the Wal-Mart fruit unnaturally stays ripe longer, or if the Aldi fruit unnaturally rots faster. But something is different between
the two stores!
