Where you put produce items inside the fridge is also critical for their lifespan. Be sure to prevent overcrowding to help the air inside circulate. Put fruits and veggies inside the crisper drawer.

If you’re unsure of the correct fridge temperature or you don’t know which pieces of produce should be put in the fridge or left to ripen first on the counter, look to the labels for help or check out the below resource for a handy breakdown.
