my absolute favorite way to protect my fruit is by using the clear strawberry / blueberry packaging baskets. they are the best is you have bird, rat, squirrel, raccoon, possum issues in your yard.
It creates a micro climate by trapping heat around the fruit; hence ripening it faster.
The best ones are the ones that snap on and are difficult to open by outdoor creatures.
I truly hope you'd give it a try. it works really well.
