Do you keep your fruit in the fridge or on the dining table?

Fruits are best stored in the fridge, but out of concerns many people keep it open on the dining table. I dont consider it good as most of the fruits are perishable and get easily out of shape and value on content! What about you?

It depends on how long you store it.If you want to store it for a couple of days,it is enough if you keep it on the dining table.If you want to store for a week long it is advisable to store it in refridgerator as they might shrink and loss their nutrient content.

Hello dhawanbm, i guess it depends strongly which kind of fruit it is and how fast you want to eat them. In my case it looks like this that i prefer to have some fresh fruits which i can eat cold in combination with an fruit salad. Otherwise the fruit salad will look very fast very brown . But sometimes i don't like to eat certain fruits when they are cold. Have you ever biten in a cold apple, wow, with sensitive teeths it can hurt really well . And if i want to eat the fruits within one day, it's ok to keep them in a basket on the dining table, isn't it? Have a great time in myLot and keep on posting, hope you reached the payout... 40 more responses to go for 10$ payout!

In Europe there is always a fruit basket on the dining table...Now that I live in the South of the United States in the summer time a lot of fruit flies are buzzing around so I keep everything in the refrigerator except for bananas

I agree most fruits are better kept in the fridge, and even taste better cold. However, I do have a bowl of washed green apples on my counter. My children like to just grab an apple and if I leave it in the bowl on teh counter in their sight, they are more likely to grab that than an unhealthy snack. Also, if you have sensitive teeth, cold apples can bother your teeth. They hurt my daughter's teeth. I prefer apples cold, so I also keep some in the fridge. I have a hanger to hang my bananas on and leave on the counter, because the fridge does cause them to brown and ripen too fast.

I agree with you. It is much better to keep fruit in the fridge rather than to just put them on the dining table. However, I live in a dormitory without a fridge presently and have to keep all my fruit on my desk. In order to avoid them to perish, I only buy a few pieces once a few days.

I always put my fruit in the fridge. I don't usually buy bananas, so I don't have to worry if they are ripe yet or not. If I leave fruit out, I find that it attracts gnats, and I hate gnats. Plus, fruit always tastes better to me cold. Now I'm craving some fruit!

Except for Bananas & Green Mangoes, everything else goes in the fridge. I like to eat my Ripe Mangoes and Pineapples cold.

If you put them in the fridge then for example bananas can't ripen ( when they are still green) too well and that will have an effect on the taste.
