After a long trip to the supermarket you probably place your tomatoes immediately in the fridge, don’t you? I am not sure if everyone does this but I definitely know I do. I do this with all type of tomatoes even the small tomatoes better known as cherry tomatoes. No one has actually ever told me that I am not supposed to keep these fruits in the fridge, so I remained on doing so until I read this.
Because of the cold air in your fridge, the ripening process of the tomatoes is interrupted which can result in a loss of texture and flavor and I think that is the last thing you want to happen to your tomatoes right? It is best if you keep your tomatoes outside of the fridge. You can keep them fresh for much longer if you keep them in a fruit bowl for example. This way you will keep the taste in tact and you will also add some color and volume to your fruit bowl!
