Know your drawers Most refrigerators have produce drawers with humidity settings. Get to know your settings and improve the lifespan of your fruits and vegetables.
Keep it separated Separate very ripe fruit, such as apples and bananas, from your other produce. As some fruits ripen, they give off a gas that causes other produce to ripen quickly and go bad. Check your fruit regularly and eat the ripest first. Try drying or freezing ripe fruit if you can’t eat it fast enough.
