When buying fruit do you place on the counters or do you put it on the table with a nice basket?

I like putting it in a basket on the table but for some reason there are these gnats that are very annoying and once you think about it I have heard that these gnats are stow aways from the stores that is disgusting. These gnats appear especially with bananas. I have tried putting them in the Fridge but I hate cold fruit it hurts my teeth.

  • Yea, fruit on the table in a basket is soo better homes and gardens but the truth is they attract all kinds of bugs. Take the fruit out about an hour before you plan to eat it if it's too cold. Other than that I say keep it cold and only put in a basket on the table just before company arrives. :)

  • We put it in the fridge. Bananas go on the counter though

  • Some goes in a basket and some in the fridge. I refill the basket as it gets empty.
