- Wash and dry to remove any dirt, wax, or residue.
- Check weekly to ensure none have developed soft spots.
- Inspect before purchasing for any blemishes. Damaged produce will have a shortened shelf life and can affect the quality of other stored produce as well.
- For longer lasting apples and squash think about wrapping in paper first. Alternatively you could line your baskets with bundles of butcher paper and nestle them in. This prevents them from knocking against each other and causing damage.
