It will take approx one year to ripen !
When it starts to drop down from the vertical , keep an eye on it . Pick
only when the scales at the base start to lift away .Then only eat about a
half inch at a time . Only as much as is exposed by the scales falling away
by them selves . Place standing up in a large jar or glass coverd by a
paperbag . I used to have over a dozen all lined up , yum yum .
Michael's instructions may be "best" but in the Indiana University greenhouses, we waited until the conservatory smelled like "strawberry shortcake" - THEN the Monstera fruit was ripe!
