What Vegetables Should Not be Refrigerated

The vegetable cooler has a great effect on keeping the freshness and quality of vegetables. Because the harvested vegetables are still living organisms. In order to maintain life, they are still breathing and evaporating, as a result, the mature aging of them is accelerated.


The vegetable showcase provides appropriate temperature for vegetables, which can reduce the incidence of pathogenic bacteria and the rate of decay of fruits, and slow down the process of respiratory metabolism of vegetables, achieving the purpose of preventing decay. But there are also some vegetables are not fit to be put in vegetable refrigerator. Let me give a brief introduction of it.



Put tomatoes in the vegetable showcase can make their texture become strange and make them taste unpleasant. Tomatoes are best to be put in the warm sunlight and on the counter, where they can mature to a level of absolute perfection. And when we plan to eat tomatoes at the peak of their season, preserving its perfect texture and juicy meat is our top priority.


2,Hard pumpkins

You should store zucchini in the vegetable cooler, but thick-skinned items such as pumpkins, acorns, walnuts and so on should be kept at room temperature. This aims to maintain their texture, but mainly because round shape vegetable often takes up a lot of space on the drawer or the shelf of the vegetable showcase. The vegetable refrigerator is always crowded, so those hard squash things are put on the counter to save space for other things.


3,Potatoes and sweet potatoes

You should store the starchy vegetables such as potatoes and sweet potatoes in cool, dry and dark places instead of the vegetable cooler. This prevents potatoes from germinating, which can be promoted by sunlight and water. Germinated potatoes doesn't lead to more potatoes, but they contain potentially harmful compounds and taste bad.



Corn doesn't really belong to the vegetable showcase. Put corn in the vegetable refrigerator itself won't hurt it and may keep it fresh, but if you want to use it in a day or two, you can put it outside to release some space.



Eggplants don't need to be in the vegetable cooler, but be careful not to leave them in a warm place, or they will wither. If you want to get the best results from this ingredient, it's important to find a suitable medium: put them in a cool, dark place which away from direct sunlight.

6,Garlic, onions and shallots

Garlic, onions and shallots should not be stored in the vegetable showcase except onions and shallots. These vegetables can be stored in a cool, dry, dark place. And make sure to avoid wrapping them in plastic bags. Your shallots, onions and garlic want to breathe! Breathing in a plastic bag is not the easiest thing.



Peppers are red, green, yellow, or even peppers, and they all work well without any vegetable cooler. Store them in a paper bag in a cool space is enough.


Although the vegetable showcase provide many conveniences to our life, we should take care of that some items are better not put into it, otherwise the favor of them will be affected. For more matters needing attention, please click the website of Meibca.
