Tomatoes & Potatoes... Don't Make

Did you know that tomatoes don't like being in close quarters with potatoes and carrots? What most homemakers don't know is that it's not enough to simply place your favorite produce inside the fridge to keep it fresh. Some fruits and vegetables should not be placed side-by-side. When you thoughtlessly toss fruits and vegetables together in one place, you may be tossing hard-earned pesos in the garbage bin. Why so?

Fruits and vegetables may go bad quickly even when stored inside the crisper due to the effect of enzymes. Ethylene gas is a naturally occurring ripening agent produced by certain fruits and vegetables that cause them to ripen and decay. Some ethylene producers are avocados, bananas, kiwi, mangoes, papayas, peaches, pears and tomatoes.

On the other hand, some fruits and vegetables are sensitive to ethylene gas so that when placed near ethylene producers, they can become tough, bitter and soft, they may lose their color, or develop spots. Examples of ethylene-sensitive produce are apples, asparagus, carrots broccoli, cucumber, eggplant, green beans, lettuce and greens, potatoes and watermelons.

If you want a happy neighborhood of fruits and vegetables in your refrigerator, segregate! Store your favorite produce separately in durable zipper storage bags.

Carelessly storing together fresh produce inside the fridge will cause your fruits and veggies to deteriorate faster. To prevent premature decay and sliminess of fruits, browning or yellowing of vegetables, and bad smell in the fridge, always use zipper storage bags.
