Which foods shouldn't be stored together?
10 common mistakes when storing fruits and vegetables
4. Bananas lie on top of each other
It is best to store bananas hanging up instead of lying on top of each other in a fruit bowl. This avoids pressure points and the bananas do not get brown spots.
5. Ethylene ignored: tomato next to cucumber, apple next to kiwi
Some foods emit the gas ethylene, which accelerates the ripening process of certain types of fruit and vegetables. The tomato, for example, emits ethylene and should therefore not lie directly next to the ethylene-sensitive cucumber. Apples can also fuel the ripening process of kiwis lying next to them. If this is not desired, the fruits should be stored separately. But you can also use the effect positively: For example, green bananas ripen faster if you add apples or pears.
6. Frozen cucumber in the refrigerator
Cucumbers are sensitive to the cold. They can become soft and watery in the refrigerator, or they can even freeze and become mushy. They feel more comfortable in the basement or in a dark corner of the pantry.
7. Cherries washed before storage
Cherry lovers should only wash the fruits shortly before consumption, otherwise they will become mushy and spoil more quickly. To ensure that cherries stay fresh longer, they should also keep their style and be stored in a perforated plastic bag (PE) in the refrigerator's vegetable compartment.
8. Garlic and onions packed airtight
Garlic and onions like it cool, dark and, above all, dry. If they are stored too moist, they will spoil. Therefore do not store in airtight containers or plastic bags!
9. Pear stored next to odorous foods
The pear has the peculiarity of quickly taking on foreign smells. Friends of good taste should therefore keep leeks or odor-intensive cheese away from the pear. When it comes to pears, the degree of ripeness decides where to store them: put unripe pears on the storage shelf, completely ripe ones in the refrigerator.
10. Oranges and lemons stored in the refrigerator
Oranges do not belong in the refrigerator as they lose their taste there. Lemons also lose some of their essential oils and thus their beautiful scent in too cold surroundings. They should therefore be kept in the pantry at moderate room temperatures, as light as possible.
