There is nothing worse than your fruit going off right a few days after you buy it. It’s a waste of money, and a waste of food, yet it always seems to be the case with at least one banana or stray grape. The way you’re storing your fruit could be a reason why they’re not lasting to their full potential, so we’re here to tell you the best way to store your fruit to get the longevity you need!
They should be stored in a cool, dry place. They definitely don’t need to be in the fridge and can survive in the fruit bowl.
Surprisingly, apples should actually be kept in the fridge. They soften ten times faster at room temperature, and will last a lot longer when kept refrigerated.
Being kept in the fridge will make your berries last a lot longer. Bonus points for being kept in the crisper!
Keep these at room temp to help them last as long as possible.
Mangoes, plums, peaches and pears
If you’re needing to ripen these fruits, you can keep them at room temperature in a brown paper bag, and then can be refrigerated if you’re wanting them to last longer.
You should store pineapples at room temperature, but you should place them upside down for a day or two to help the sweetness spread through the entire fruit!
Hopefully this will help you in the future, and make sure you’re getting the most out of your fruit!
