After a long trip to the supermarket, you probably put the tomatoes immediately in the fridge. I do this with all kinds of tomatoes, even the small ones, better known as cherry tomatoes. Actually, no one has ever told me that I shouldn’t keep these fruits in the fridge, so I kept doing it until I read this.
Due to the cold air in the fridge, the ripening process of tomatoes is interrupted, which can lead to a loss of texture and flavour. It is best to keep tomatoes out of the fridge. You can keep them fresh for much longer if you store them in a fruit bowl, for example. This will keep the flavour intact and also add some colour and volume to your fruit bowl.
