How To Store Produce


Some fruits and veggies keep best in the fridge. Some should never be put there! To help your produce last as long as possible, we made a list of where to store produce, including which do best when chilled, as well as those that should be left on the counter.

There are a lot of different ideas out there about how you should store your produce. Some of us keep our apples on the counter instead of the fridge, some refrigerate whole pineapple, and others are dead-set against storing their tomatoes anywhere but on the counter. But in some cases, it’s not just a matter of personal preference, because your produce will last longer and taste better if it’s stored one way over another. To help settle the debate once and for all (and help you reduce food waste), we put together instructions for storing some of the most controversial pieces of produce and included helpful lists so you'll know where to store all your fresh produce.
