FAQs & Fresh Tips

How do I keep produce fresh?

Follow these tried and true tips for keeping fruits and veggies at their freshest:

Apples: Apples should be stored in the crisper drawer for maximum crispness for 7-10 days. They can be stored in a cool location out of the refrigerator for 4-7 days.

Avocados: Store ripe avocados in a crisper drawer in the fridge for 2-3 days. To ripen avocados, store out of refrigeration next to bananas for 2-4 days until the avocado gives to gentle pressure.

Berries: Store unwashed in the original container in the fridge for 2-4 days.

Cabbage, Broccoli, & Cauliflower: Refrigerate, quartered, in sealed containers, or uncut in a crisper drawer for 3-7 days.

Celery: Cut into stalks and submerge in water in the refrigerator for 7-10 days.

Citrus: Store on the countertop for up to a week.

Carrots & Baby Carrots: Remove leafy greens if applicable. Refrigerate in a plastic bag for up to 2 weeks.

Leafy Greens: Remove and discard wilted or discolored leaves. Refrigerate unwashed, sealed in plastic zipper bags, for 3-5 days.

Onions & Garlic: Store in a ventilated space, on the counter in a paper bag, or in a basket for 2-3 weeks.

Pears: Pears should be stored out of refrigeration for 3-5 days until ripe. Ripe pears can be stored in the refrigerator for an additional 2 days.

Potatoes & Sweet Potatoes: Store in a cool, dark place with relatively high humidity and air circulation for 2-3 weeks.

Tomatoes: Store ripe tomatoes upside down on the counter for 3-5 days away from bananas. Avoid storing in the refrigerator as this diminishes the eating experience.

How do I clean fresh produce?

Even in squeaky-clean environments, produce can become contaminated. Protect yourself (and your favorite people) from becoming sick due to airborne ilnesses, according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA):

  • Wash your hands prior to preparing fresh produce.

  • Cut out and remove damaged or bruised areas of produce.

  • Rinse produce before peeling to prevent bacteria transfer from the fruit to the knife.

  • Gently rub produce under warm water to clean it. (Don't use soap or produce wash.)

  • To clean produce like melons or celery, use a clean vegetable brush or toothbrush.

  • Dry produce with a clean cloth or paper towel to remove residual bacteria.

  • Remove the outermost leaves of cabbage or lettuce prior to food prep.

How do I choose fresh fruits?

When buying fresh produce, for the most flavorful, produce with the greatest nutritional value: use your senses. How does the item look, smell, and feel? Keep these things in mind when picking the perfect produce:

How to choose fresh fruit:

Apples: Look for good color that's firm to the touch. Avoid fruit with bruising or soft spots.

Bananas: Pick for yellow for consumption today or tomorrow, choose light green to enjoy in 2-3 days. Choose bananas that are blemish and bruise free.

Berries: Look for bright, firm, plump, smooth fruit. Always avoid fruit that’s dull or shriveled.

Citrus: Look for bright, firm, plump, smooth fruit. Always avoid fruit that’s dull or shriveled.

Grapes: Choose tender, plump, well-formed clusters with green, pliable stems.

Kiwi: Ripe kiwi give to slight pressure.

Mangoes: Choose solid and not too soft with smooth skin.

Melons: Look for symmetry and blemish free skin. Smell for a pleasant aroma. Avoid pockmarks, bruising, or shriveled skin.

Nectarines & Peaches: Choose plump, fairly firm fruit. Smell for a pleasant aroma.

Pears: Ripe pears give to slight pressure. Choose pears that are smooth and blemish free.

Pineapples: Choose fruit that's golden yellow in color. Ripe fruit will be slightly soft and have a sweet smell at the stem end.

Plums: Look for fruit that's plump that yields to minimal pressure. Avoid shriveled, hard fruit.

4 Types of Squash to Try This Fall

Squash is in season, and our produce pros are here to help you find the pick of the patch! Whether you're carving, roasting or baking, we have you covered. From fresh cuts of ready-to-cook butternut squash to whole pumpkins straight from the farm, we're proud to bring you produce at its peak.

So, whether you're craving pie or want to make the perfect Sunday dinner side dish, here are four types of squash you need to try this fall.

Butternut Squash

Butternut squash is a popular choice for fall meals. The orange-hued vegetable is sweet, and it's easy to prepare. You can bake it, steam it or roast it. You can also use butternut squash as a substitute for pumpkin in recipes that call for pumpkin puree.

Spaghetti Squash

Spaghetti squash can be served as a side dish or the main course. It's also one of the easiest squashes to prepare — just cut it in half vertically, scrape out the seeds and bake for 45 minutes at 350°F. Then use a fork to pull out long strands of spaghetti-like flesh from the shell before serving with your favorite sauce or topping.

Acorn Squash

You'll find acorn squash in abundance during the autumn months when it's in season. It has an orange-yellow flesh that contains lots of vitamin A and potassium, making it a great option if you're looking for an alternative to potatoes and carrots.

Pumpkin

Yes, pumpkin count as a squash! Used in everything from coffee to pie and soup to cookies, it has a sweet flavor with a texture like butternut squash. When buying pumpkins at the store, look for firm pumpkins that are heavy for their size and have no soft spots on the exterior.

Handled with care from farm to you.
