What is the best one to store fruit and veg to make them last longer

  1. Keep fruits and vegetables separate, as some fruits produce ethylene gas, which can cause other produce to ripen and spoil more quickly.
  2. Store fruits and vegetables in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator, which is designed to help regulate temperature and humidity.
  3. Check the temperature of your refrigerator to make sure it is set to the appropriate level (usually between 35 and 40 degrees Fahrenheit).
  4. Wash and dry produce before storing it to remove any dirt or residue that could promote spoilage.
  5. Use perforated bags or containers with ventilation to allow for air circulation, or wrap produce loosely in a paper towel to absorb excess moisture.
  6. Consider freezing excess produce that you can’t use up right away, which can be a good option for fruits like berries or vegetables like spinach.
  7. Be sure to regularly check the freshness of your produce and use up items that are beginning to spoil before they go bad.
