We like to eat vegetables and fruits as fresh as we can. And to eat them fresh you shouldn't buy them more rapidly. Great tips of storage can help you in keeping them fresh.  So photozone tells you the best tips for more fresh vegetables and fruits.

1. Store Them Without Washing

It is true, it us better for your fruits and vegetables to not wash them before scoring in your refrigerator or any other place. The alternate way to store them clean is just cleaning them in any dry way. Washing actually makes fruits and vegetables lose their ability to keep fresh and resist mold naturally.

2. Keep Them in a Dry Environment

As mentioned، moisture makes vegetables and fruits get moldy faster. So when storing them a piece of cloth or tissue can help in absorbing moisture and keeping them dry. Whatever the way you will keep them dry, the most important thing is that they stay dry to stay fresh.

7. Don't Store Fruits Together

Bananas, apricots, melons, pears, plums, mangoes, among others start to produce ethylene as they ripen. That's safe, but others like apples, watermelons and pumpkins are sensitive to ethylene and they start rotting if they are near the ethylene producing types. So you better be storing those types separately.
