Where do you keep your fruit?

should fruit go in frig or on table? I'm not sure if the frig will make them rot sooner.

  • kinda like what rkoloms said... keep berries and things typically that "age" fast in the fridg.

    just keep this as a good rule of thumb - if you want it to RIPE FAST? leave it out. (RIPE FASTER? Leave out where sun hits it)

    if you want to keep it "freash" longer, always make sure its in a sealed bag or container in a fruit designated-jawar(?) in the Fridge. >>THAT WAY:: other toxins/oxygen that the other food releases inside ur fridge wont poisen/kill/rott ur fruit<<

    -there should be a cubbie/Jawar in the Fridge that you can set the setting to "fruit" or "veggies" & it will moniter the amount of coolness that goes into it - to help keep that "fruit" or "veggies" freasher longer.

    hope this helped =)

  • i'd like to know more too! usually i keep all fruits and vegies in the fridge..... unless it's very unripe then i leave it on the counter for a couple days. i don;t have too much problems with fruit. i just need to figure out how to keep my vegies longer.

  • look at where you buy them from, if that space is cooled or not

  • It depends on the fruits. Berries, grapes, apples, stone fruits all go in the refrigerator. Bananas don't go in the refrigerator. Citrus and kiwi depends on age.

  • I put mine in the fridge because I prefer to eat my fruit cold. Except bananas. I leave them out.
