They missed the biggest tip.

Don't buy more produce than you can use before it goes bad.

Not one mention of separation of apples and bananas?!

For shame!

Apples give off ethylene, with is a gas that ripens bananas.

If you got unripe bananas you gotta use tomorrow, then put them in a bag with one or two apples.

Bananas are transported in the green, unripe state - before being delivered to grocery stores, the banana containers are gassed with ethylene to hasten the ripening.

Gyrfalcon: robohobo: Moonfisher: rcf1105: I've put bananas in the fridge before. The color gets a little funky but I swear they stay fresh longer.

Same. And they taste better cold, especially sliced up in yogurt.

I swear bananas tasted better when I was a kid. It could be chalked up to being 30 year old memories, but I think I'd put money on them having been tastier.

Google "banana mutation fungus" or whatever it was recently. There really is something that's making bananas less tasty than they used to be.

I'm guessing they'll cover fresh leafy items like lettuce, cilantro and basil in a different installment. Those are the tricky ones.

fresh herbs and green onions? rinse then wrap in paper towel (slight moisture ok), then wrap in plastic.  I keep them in the butter thing.  Alternatively, storing green onions like they're in a vase with water keeps them well.
