Store Fruit with Hands On Hemp Bags or without any bag at all!
Fruit is actually very low-maintenance to store – at least for fresh consumption. Fruits seem to preserve itself naturally better then vegetables since they are not as affected by the factors of temperature, air circulation, and moisture.
Think about it – citrus, avocados, bananas, mangos, kiwis –they all have peels on them that protect them while keeping them fresh and juicy. I like to think of their peels as their own bags made by nature.
TIPS FOR STORING YOUR FRESH FRUTS :
We store most of our fruits in the fridge because we like them cold and doing so helps most fruit last longer.
Simply place fresh fruit directly in fridge or in Hands On Hemp reusable bags and store the fruit anywhere in your refrigerator. (It’s a good idea to save the crisper drawers mostly for veggies.)
If you want to see your fruit, simply leave the hemp bag open at the top. With most fruit it is not necessary to keep moisture in the bag.
STORING FRUIT IN THE REFRIGERATOR:
Store any and all ripe fruit that you buy, in the fridge for longer lasting storage.
STORING FRUIT AT ROOM TEMPERATURE:
Store any fruit that is not yet ripe, in a bowl or directly on the counter. It is best to limit direct sunlight. Bananas need to be stored at room temperature or they get brown skins and a mealy texture.
Some fruits best stored at room temperature:
Transfer any fully ripened fruit you’d like to preserve for a few more days into the fridge (except bananas).
You can freeze any fruit you’d like. If it has a peel, you’ll want to peel it off, possibly cutting the fruit into pieces and then freezing them in an airtight container – ideally something non-plastic like glass tupperware or mason jars. Metal tupperware is also good.
GROWING YOUR OWN FRUIT:
We're a big fan of growing as many of our own fruits and veggies as we can. It's possible to grow some type of fruit in almost any climate. Do some research to see what you can grow in your own backyard!
