TLC FOR YOUR VEGGIES

Lemons - Uncut lemons can be left out on the counter. Once cut, place inside a zip-locked bag, squeezing out as much air as you can. In this state, the lemons may retain most of their juice and flavor for as long as four weeks.

Tomatoes - Depending on ripeness, tomatoes can stay for up to two weeks on the counter. To hasten ripeness, place in a paper bag with an apple.
Kale - Wash kale dry and store your kale in an airtight container in the refrigerator. The less moisture possible is best.

Papaya - A papaya that is partially yellow should be left at room temperature and allow to ripen for a few days. If you want to speed this process, place in a paper bag with a banana. Ripe fruit should be stored in the refrigerator and consumed within one or two days for maximum flavor.

Micro Greens - The small leafy greens are best kept in the package in the crisp drawer for four to six days. Wash before use.

Spring Onions - Keep in the refrigerator in the crisper drawer, sealed well in a plastic bag, and they'll stay fresh for about a week.

Carrots - Cut off carrot greens, place carrots in a container with a lid and cover completely in water. Keep container in the refrigerator, changing the water ever four to five days. The bunch should last up to a month with proper storage inside the fridge.

Corn - Place ears of corn in your refrigerator as soon as possible. Leave the husk on, if possible, and let the corn sit in the fridge uncovered. Keep the temperature at or below 40 degrees to reduce the amount of natural sugars in the corn from turning to starch at higher temperatures.

Zucchini - Does fine for a few days if left out on a cool counter, even after cut. Wrap in a cloth and refrigerate for longer storage. Do not wash until ready to eat. Lasts 4-5 days.

Lettuce - Lettuce is best stored in a dry package and kept in the crisp drawer for five to seven days.

Kale - Wash kale dry and store your kale in an airtight container in the refrigerator. The less moisture possible is best.
