Question by  BeckyPrice (22)

How do you keep fruit fresh?

Do I keep it in the refrigerator?


Answer by  jangm96 (899)

Make sure fridge temperature is at a steady temperature of 34 degrees F. Also store fruits in vegetables in separate containers in the fridge.

Many fruits do not need to be refrigerated such as oranges, apples, bananas and pears until they are cut open. Then they must be refrigerated. I like to use a powdered product called Fruit Fresh that you sprinkle on cut fruit, again, this must then be refrigerated.

The only fruit I keep in the frig is Watermelon, Cantelope and Honey Dew. Apples and oranges I keep on the dark part of the counter and we eat them within two days. Bananas should not be refrigerated because they will turn black. Only buy what you will use within 2 to 3 days.
