Make Your Fresh Fruit at Radwyn Apartments Last Longer With These Tips

September 24, 2015

If you enjoy eating fresh fruit, but don't like how quickly it goes bad, take a few minutes at Radwyn Apartments to learn how to keep your fruit fresher longer. Here are some tips:

  • Bananas tend to go bad quickly. Because they ripen much faster than other fruits, buy them in small batches. Also, keep them out of the refrigerator. Sit them on the counter instead.
  • Don't let fruits get overripe. Fruits ripen at room temperature and sometimes become overripe, which causes them to turn brown. Store fruits such as grapes, berries, and other citruses in the refrigerator to make them last longer.
  • Keep your fruit dry. Fruit rots or grows mold when it is moist, so keep your fruit dry. Avoid washing the fruit as soon as you get home from the store; instead, wash it right before you are ready to eat it.
