Long lasting food: ApplesApples

Apples need an optimal temperature of 30°F to 32°F—just 10 degrees warmer, and they’ll ripen twice as fast. If you want your apples to last for weeks, keep them in a plastic bag in your fruit crisper drawer, away from vegetables (the ethylene gas they emit will cause other vegetables to ripen faster).

Bonus tip: Eat the largest apples in your bag first; they’re usually the first to go bad.
