Should Fruit Go In The Fridge?

Depends on the fruit.

Yes, some fruits should always be stored at a refrigerator temperature of 33 F (0 C). These include stone fruit like peaches and cherries, citrus fruits like grapefruit and limes, avocados and berries. Many other fruits – including bananas, apples, tomatoes and grapes- can safely be stored outside the fridge as long as they are not sitting next to raw meat or raw fish which may contaminate them with bacteria. Of course it’s always a good idea to wash produce before placing them in either section of your refrigerator!.
