Setting the correct Refrigerator temperature to preserve freshness

Where you store produce (fruits and vegetables) is the major consideration in preserving its freshness.

Temperature is the most important factor in the location equation. The warmest part of your refrigerator is nearest the door and the coolest area is in the back. As a quick reference, store these in the warmest section of your refrigerator around 40° to 45° F:

  • Cucumbers
  • Eggplant
  • Peppers
  • Avocados
  • Red potatoes
These will fare the best in the mid­section of your refrigerator around 35° to 39° F:
  • Green onions
  • Squash
  • Sprouts
  • Herbs
These go in the back of your refrigerator. These items need to be stored at the coolest temperature around 33°-35° F:
  • Broccoli
  • Cabbage
  • Apples
  • Celery
  • Lettuce
  • Asparagus
And, some items should be stored in the coolest section of your kitchen, not in the refrigerator at all! Temperatures ranging from 50°-55°F:
  • Bananas
  • Potatoes
  • Tomatoes
  • Onions
You can also use Storage Food Containers and Food Boxes to keep produce fresh for longer periods of time (both cut and uncut)
