Artificial branches for fruit

Stick on some kind of nutrient sac to the stem of recently picked fruit so that they continue to ripen as if they were still on the tree. I'm pretty sick of unripe mangoes.

Plant hormones http://www.shmoop.c...plant-hormones.html

       Go one better: Pick totally under-ripe fruit and grow it to full ripeness on artificial limbs in shipping and stores whilst encouraging the tree to start more under-ripe fruit in the same growing season.   

       Where the hormones, there moan I.
