Early man used the hot sun, smoke and salt to preserve fruits and vegetables for coming harsh seasons. Today, the refrigerator is the perfect place to hide our foodstuff. We tend to take things a little too far especially when we tuck away every form of food we can lay our hand on into the fridge. It not only increases chances that your fridge will have a peculiar odor after some time, but might not be the best for certain veggies. Here are 5 vegetables and fruits you should never store in your refrigerator.
1 – Tomatoes
Most of us are guilty of storing tomatoes inside the refrigerator. Why we do it? Tomatoes go bad fast and we want them to remain “eatable” longer. However, keeping tomatoes in the fridge actually destroys their flavor. Yes, that’s the reason you always wonder why your refrigerated tomatoes “taste different”. Buy as much as you need and keep them at room temperature and away from direct sunlight.
