Fruit bagging is the practice of putting bags over fruit to protect them from pests, elements and disease. The practice is associated with organic farming as an alternative to pesticides. Some fruits grow well in a plastic bag while others require something more breathable. Bags are typically applied when the fruit first appears and are kept on until harvest. Bags do affect the taste of fruit and may make them sweeter in some instances. Farmers typically experiment with different techniques to find approaches that match their environment and crop. Bags can often be reused.
