Fridge? Counter? Learn the ideal place to store your fruit to keep it fresh and tasty.
How to do it
Visit http://www.fruitsandveggies.... Click on the names of fruits you typically have at home to learn the best way to store each one.
Why it matters
Fruit tastes so much better when it's stored the proper way! Plus, by extending its shelf life, you'll be less likely to have to toss out soggy strawberries or mushy mangoes. This means more flavorful, nutritious fruit in your life and less in the garbage can.
Sapote (pronounced sah-POH-tay) is a tropical fruit that sometimes resembles a kiwi. It has a sweet, mild flavor with hints of coconut, vanilla, and lemon. This fun flavor combination makes it a popular ingredient in many ice creams.
Canned and dried go on shelf! (sliced peaches, pear halves right next to banana chips and raisins or cransins!)
Apples, Bananas, oranges are on the table where easily seen and enticed to be eaten.
Watermelon, cantaloupe, honey dew, berries are in the fridge near the front where seen as the fruit water is gotten for another refreshing drink!
We also put citrus or pear/apple in a gallon of water in our fridge with a spigot on it to get cool drinks when it's warm out, carrying G2 20oz bottles on us when we do day trips around town or go for a walk with the infused water in them to help refresh and re-hydrate while restoring our bodies!
Wine is kept in the lower shelf of the fridge once open or the lowest shelf of the cupboards beforehand to keep fresh, always on it's side, and only drank in moderation during a meal or used in a recipe for flavor. 1 bottle has lasted several months at a time, (as has other fermented beverages).
Fruit belongs in our bodies, not rotting on the vine!

I also don't have to change anything since I have had fruit on the counter for years!
Interesting information. Luckily I don't have to change anything I've been doing.
my husband sits next to me and eats fruit so I can nibble on his. Fruit is not my thing sadly:( I have to force myself
I'm working on that...
looked it up on the site given
No surprises here for fruit we normally keep other than watermelon. I grew up that one refrigerated it as soon as it came home so it would be cold when it is cut and eaten. Website said room temp. I am not sure about that.
All of my fruit goes into the refrigerator to keep except bananas. If they are not on the countertop (perferably hanging) they are peeled and in the freezer for a whipped treat!
Fruit what fruit??? giggle. When I get any fruit I have it gone in like 2days or it get bad plus it is just me so I don't get to much fruit..

I know to not put a tomato in the refrigerator so it doesn't get that odd mushy texture.
