Stockpile These Fruit – They Stay Fresh For Weeks And Help You Save Money!

Watermelons: 2 weeks

Just be sure to leave it uncut (you’ll need a lot of space in your fridge though!). If it’s cut, store the pieces in an air tight container and eat within three days.

Oranges: 2 to 3 weeks

Make sure your fridge isn’t too cold or the pulp will dry up after a few weeks.

Apples: 3 to 4 weeks

Wrap each of them in newspaper or recycled magazine paper. Why? The old saying that one bad apple spoils the rest is true. Ripe apples produce a relatively high amount of a plant hormone known as ethylene. When one apple ripens and starts to turn bad, the ethylene that it produces can cause the rest to go bad quickly.

Lemons: 4 weeks

Don’t let them loose in the fridge. They’ll store better in a plastic bag and won’t dry out so easily.
