Best results are achieved with fresh, unprocessed, unpeeled whole vegetables. Select as many veggies as you would like to eat in the next few days. Most vegetables work great in the Fruit&VeggiePod, however, some vegetables that are particularly sensitive to ethylene should be eaten within the first couple days. This includes kale, broccoli, and cauliflower. If you are storing already cut vegetables in the dome, eat within the next day.
Can I keep fruits in the Fruit&VeggiePod?
Yes, you can. The Fruit&VeggiePod is great for fruits that you would like to ripen—stone fruits like peaches and plums, ripen well in the dome, as do avocados. Do not store apples or bananas in the dome, as they will make everything else ripen too fast!
How does the Fruit&VeggiePod work?
The cookie jar-like design allows for naturally occurring ethylene to escape the dome at the lid, keeping it from spoiling the produce. The dome also creates a humid environment where the veggies are able to stay hydrated and fresh but not too much that they wilt.
