Storing Vegetables – This is How it Works

If you want to keep your vegetables fresh for as long as possible, you need to store them properly. In our home tip, we show what you should consider when storing.

Store vegetables correctly: refrigerator or cellar?

  • Eggplants, cucumbers, green beans, potatoes, squash, peppers, tomatoes, and zucchini are relatively sensitive to cold. Therefore, this vegetable should be stored at temperatures above 16 degrees.
  • Lettuce, cauliflower, broccoli, peas, carrots, radishes, Brussels sprouts, turnips, celery, asparagus, spinach, and corn are best stored in the refrigerator below 8 degrees.
  • Make sure any vegetables that don’t end up in the fridge are stored in a dark place. Direct sunlight should be avoided. A cellar is therefore ideal for the vegetables mentioned above.
