I always store fruit and veg the way they do at the marketplace where I buy them. Except for oranges.. because I like my oranges cold or frozen (usually with some vodka inside them)
I think it's all down to personal choice, I like apples that come out of the fridge, very crispy. But once you've left them outside for a while they taste funny, and it probably isn't a good idea to put them back in again.
Maybe its just the way it seems, but I think most fruit keeps longer in the fridge. But I do think with most fruit (soft fruit especially) that it tastes better if taken out of the fridge and allowed to come up to room temp for a while.
Did I hear PUNS?!

This is a great way and I can see the benefits for lonely people storing their fruit like this.Ooooh..frozen orange....sounds lish !!.....as I do not drink alcy perhaps I could use cream soda instead ! 
Shouldn't it be 'outta da fridge'?

Ewe know how it is....ewe wait and wait for fridge and food orientated questions and then three come at once !!...typical eh ? I need to have words with the executive officer in charge of fridge and food orientated rotas ! (US Translation service: "rota = roster "..Sheesh !)See Mungo & Jerry the apples ?[attachment=8400][attachment=8402] They're a nice pair aren't they ?..out of all the fruit that looks and tastes and smells like apples.........apples are my all time favourite apple type fruits called 'apple ' ! I heard today on the radio that apples should not be kept in the fridge !why's that then ?....why should I NOT keep my apples in the fridge ?...I have had great success keeping apples in the fridge and as ewe can see from another thread..I also have a modicum of accomplishment retaining them in a fruit bowl too.As a firm believer in empirical study I have been keeping apples in and out of fridges for years...and I have not noticed anything out of the ordinary besides the temperature !so..whajafink ?in da fridge ? or out da fridge ?hugs & shmishesmwah mwah mwahneilDo Bridges have Fridges ?xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Well As a food storing young lass way back about 40ish years ago..my family were armers and gardeers who raised our own fod...gardens animals...and fruit trees... we always kept the apples stored in a very dark cold dry shed or root cellar... kept them Crisper Longer and cold apples were killer to eat!
moisture rises but I believe elevatede you might be able to get them to last longer... try a few in a bowl or wooded crate and see which ones hold up longer counter or bomb shelter!
Adam the Gardener suggests using orange boxes filled with sand and then the apples placed on the sand. The apples should not touch each other as if one goes off it will make any touching apples go off. One bad apple and all that. These boxes should be stacked up and put in a dark frost free garage or shed.Apples are OK in the fridge as long as you don't let them touch the back of the fridge. This bit is colder and the apples will get frost damage.
