Cucumbers Shouldn’t Be in the Fridge

If you’ve been keeping your cucumbers in the fridge, you’ve been doing it all wrong. According to experts, cucumbers will stay fresher longer if they’re kept in a fruit bowl or in a cupboard. Experts say that if a cucumber reaches below 50 degrees Fahrenheit for over three days they’re susceptible to cold injury and that in turn will make them watery and cause them to decay faster. If you’ve had that happen to you before and you couldn’t understand why now you know. So go ahead and clean out that fruit bowl.
