Concerned About How to Keep Fruit Fresh? Use this Handy Guide -- Infographic

Are you always peering into your pantry, wondering if that apple you bought last week is still good?

It’s pretty hard to tell.

Depending on the fruit, storing them in your pantry or fridge can make a huge difference in shelf life.

That’s why Shari’s Berries created this helpful guide explaining which method will keep your fruit freshest.

While it seems obvious that chilling fruits will keep them tasty longer, some can last almost three times

more in the fridge compared to in a pantry!

“Wouldn’t you like to reduce the amount

of good fruit that goes to waste?’


‘Wouldn’t it be great take the guesswork

out of keeping fruit fresh?”

Simply refer to this handy infographic comparing the lifespan of fruits we commonly have in our homes.

See how long your favorite fruits stacked up below:

That is really handy! Thanks for that. However, I think the only one I disagree with is the watermelon – I can never get it to last more than a few days at all!

Hi Sandy,
I’m so glad you found this useful. I know that I have changed the way I store my fruit after reading this! Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me. I appreciate it.

Interesting charts i never put bananas in the frig but may now. I always put melons in the frig. It is still about how long they have been at the store too!
