When it comes to storage, not all fruits are created equal. Some fruits like avocados, bananas, melons, peaches, pears and apples emit ethylene gas as they ripen. Ethylene gas will cause other produce in close proximity to ripen quicker. In result, gaseous producing fruits should be stored separately from produce you don't want to be affected. Once ripened, place in the refrigerator as this will essentially press pause for about another week. Citrus fruits on the other hand keep best in a cool, dark place but moving them to the refrigerator will also elongate their lives. Come back tomorrow for another quick tip. In the meantime, stay fresh everyone!
