You can keep your fruits fresher for longer with these surprising tips – Towards A Better Life

It would be ideal, but there is no one-size-fits-all storage solution for maximising the freshness of various fruits. Some require a cocoon of temperate air, while others thrive when held below 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Some care and storage are clear (don’t leave berries at room temperature to spoil), while others are not. If you’ve ever wondered, “Can bananas be stored in the refrigerator?” or Where am I supposed to put this cantaloupe? We’ve got your back.

Tomatoes

Tomatoes are one of the most consumed fruits in the world (Google just told me they are both a fruit and a vegetable). You should store them in a cool, dry place with lots of ventilation and washed right before use.

Tomatoes on the counter will last approximately a week, whereas refrigerated tomatoes will last twice as long.
(Although some claim that entire tomatoes should never be refrigerated since the meat becomes soft and mushy.)

When in doubt, freeze

If you won’t be able to eat all your fruit before it goes bad, consider freezing it. De-seed melons before cutting them into slices, cubes or balls. Peel bananas and freeze them whole, or in one-inch chunks on parchment paper. Rinse, drain, and spread berries in a single layer on a cookie sheet to avoid clumping. When frozen, transfer them to labeled plastic bags or containers, where they can stay for up to one year.
