Pro Tips & Tricks: How to Make Your Fresh Fruits Last
We wouldn’t want you to throw out a good piece of fruit, all due to a storage mistake! Read our tips and tricks to find out how to get your fruit perfectly ripe and to stay fresh for as long as possible.
- Bananas, pineapples, melons, mangos, plums, peaches and pears: These meant to be stored at room temperature in a cool spot with ample circulation until ripe. Once they’re ripe, transfer them to the fridge until you’re ready to eat them; this will slow down the ripening process.
- Avocados and tomatoes: Yes, these are fruits! Store them at room temperature away from direct sunlight and use when ripe.
- Grapes, lemons, oranges and limes: Store them in the fridge’s produce/crisper drawer until ready to use. For cut-up citrus fruits, wrap them tightly in plastic wrap and store in an airtight container or zip-top bag in the fridge.
- Apples: This is a toss-up. Apples can be stored in a cool, dry dark place (for long-term storage) or in the fridge (if you know you’ll eat them within a few weeks). Apples emit ethylene gas which will speed up the ripening process for other produce so it’s best to store them separately.
- Strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries: Transfer the berries from the clamshell packaging into a bag or container lined with a paper or cloth towel. Wash right before you’re ready to eat them. Pre-washing berries will cause them to get soggy.
- Freeze any unused fruit by cutting them into bite-sized pieces, laying them on a flat sheet with parchment paper and placing them in the freezer. Once frozen, remove the fruit from sheet and store in a plastic bag or container.
