Fresher Fruits and Vegetables for Longer

1. Onions

It may sound odd, but the mesh-like substance allows barely any air to reach the vegetables, allowing them to remain fresh.


Simply slide the onions into new nylons and tie a knot among each bulb. 

2. Broccoli

Place the untrimmed cabbage stem in a cup of water, or swaddle the broccoli head in a damp paper towel, and refrigerate.


Follow this guide to learn how to preserve broccoli if you wish to store it for an extended period of time.

3. Potatoes

Apples generate ethylene gas, which keeps potatoes fresh for over eight weeks. 

4. Apples

Apple slices are a practical snack and salad topper, but caramelized apples are unappealing.

5. Celery

In contrast to a bag made of plastic, aluminum foil allows the ethylene gas to escape.


When ethylene is confined in a bag made of plastic, it accelerates the loss of moisture and spoilage.

6. Cauliflower

To preserve broccoli, loosely wrap a damp towel around its crown and store it in a plastic bag inside the refrigerator.

7. Bananas

Again, ethylene gas is to blame, but removing each banana out of the bunch and surrounding each stem in plastic wrap can prevent the gas from spreading.


 If they are already too mature for your taste, peel them and place them in the freezer.
