Fruit & Vegetable Storage & Placement in the Kitchen

 

There are plenty of fruits and vegetables in the world but it’s important to know how to store your items, so they remain as fresh as they possibly can be! No one wants to waste the food they’ve bought. 

 

Real Simple offers a great guide in their article “How to Store Fruits and Vegetables.” These are just a few of the fruits they list and how to keep them fresh and ready to eat!

 

  • Apples

 

      • Refrigerator: 3 weeks

 

  • Bananas

 

      • Countertop: 5 days

 

  • Pineapple

 

    • Countertop: 5 days (whole)

 

It’s also important to remember and keep in mind that certain fruits and/or vegetables shouldn’t be kept near each other if you’d like to keep them fresh! 

A way to store the fruits and vegetables that can be kept out of the refrigerator is in baskets on the counter or even hanging tiered baskets to keep your countertops clear. A great option is this 3-Tiered Deppon Wire Hanging Fruit Basket, which “features 3 tiers allowing for numerous fruits and room temperature groceries to be hung and organized with care.”
