Choosing Fresh Fruit Chart

I Stumbled on this nifty chart on how to choose the freshest fruit, which pieces of fruit to avoid and how to store and/or ripen it. I can't get it to format correctly when I try to move it over here, so I'll just have to put a link in: Cook'n Newsletter

Thanks for the chart.

BTW, did anyone notice where it said you can store tomatos in the fridge? If they're fully ripe anyway

I always have, once they have ripened. Usually a big bowl of cherry tomatoes.

That's a great list. I usually pick great fruits and veggies but from the chart I've been storing them incorrectly!

I would not trust this chart 100%. Tomatoes should NOT be stored in the fridge.

GB, tomatoes never last long enough for me to store, also a cold tomato has no flavor!
