The Best Way To Store Bell Peppers So They Last Longer

Bell peppers are one of the produce section's unsung heroes. If you want them to stay fresh for longer, the best option is to store them in your refrigerator's crisper drawer.

The crisper drawer has a different humidity level than other parts of the fridge. By controlling the air that flows through the vents, the drawer helps enhance freshness.

Since bell peppers have tougher skins, set your drawer to low humidity, which is best for thicker-skinned produce. Keep peppers in an open plastic bag for better air circulation.

The color of your peppers, among other factors, will likely determine how long they last. Since the green variety is less ripe, it usually stays fresher longer than other colors.

Storing bell peppers whole is best because they don't last long in the fridge when cut. Even in an airtight container with a paper towel, they only stay good for about two days.
