Storing produce correctly is the best way to ensure all your wonky tomatoes, avocados and potatoes taste absolutely scrumptious when you're ready to enjoy them! 

  • Stonefruit and citrus can be stored on the counter, but if you'd like to slow down the ripening process you can also store them in the fridge.
  • Items like onions, garlic, hard squash, and potatoes are best kept in a dark cool location such as a pantry.
    • Make sure you store your onions and spuds separately. Onions emit a gas that causes potatoes to sprout faster!
    • Spuds that have begun to sprout are still safe to consume. You only need to remove the sprouts themselves!

  • Most other fruits and vegetables should be kept in the fridge.
    • Fridge temperature should be at 40℉ or below 
    • Cut or peeled produce should always be refrigerated 
    • Asparagus stays fresher longer if placed stem-end down in an inch of water.

  • Mushrooms are best kept in a paper bag. 
  • Vegetables and fruits should be stored separately.
  • Greens immediately begin to lose their moisture content once removed from the ground. 
    • A great way to extend the life of your greens is to store them with a few paper towels.
    • If your greens are looking a little droopy you can revive them by first cutting off any browned parts and then soaking them cool water for twenty minutes.
