The Shelf Life of Fruits and Vegetables

Mushrooms can keep for a week in the fridge if you put them in a brown paper bag. It breathes so they do not turn mushy. Even if they get darker, you can still slice them up for a saute. Zuchinni last much longer also, just keep them in a cool place but not the fridge. Many people put all veggies and fruits in the fridge and most do not like it. Peppers, tomatoes do better out of the fridge just on the counter. I have had store bought toms last over a week, fresh ones for almost 2 weeks. Depends on the ripeness when picked. Report

Not very accurate! Most of the items in the 1-2 day list last much longer. I can't find bananas that are even ripe enough to eat for 3-4 days. Report
