We love having a big array of different fruits for our cooked, five-grain cereal in the morning. There is almost always a piece of this, or half of that left over to be used the next day. This is how I store the remaining fruit from day to day.
This is one of a set of six boxes of two sizes that does a really good job of keeping our fruit fresh from day to day. Because we eat such a variety of fruits each day, it follows that I have to make arrangements to store half (or more) of nearly all fruits until at least the next day, if not longer. It takes us nearly a week to do away with the bright baubles provided by the pomegranates, so it is especially important to keep it viable. These boxes, combined with the Fresh Paper, provide the wherewithal to do exactly that.
The little holes are each covered with a piece of plastic that can be left open, or closed, independently of the other. Mostly I leave them both open for maximum air circulation. The bottom is ridged so that fluid does not collect on the bottom surface of the container and spoil the food within.
Amazingly, these containers are still available (though not inexpensive) through Amazon.
The little white papers? Those are the Fresh Paper bits that I keep everywhere that there is fresh produce. It is amazing how much longer our produce lasts using them. I rarely need to throw out produce because it has somehow spoiled while I wasn’t looking.
You can read more about Fresh Paper at a blog that I wrote way back when. It really works as advertised. I am thrilled with the much smaller amount of fresh produce that is now lost to spoilage.

And take a good look at those green grapes . . . they are so big that I cut them into six or eight pieces before putting them into the bowl. I have been eyeing them for a long time, waiting for them to come down in price. They are currently $4.00 a pound, but I could wait no longer. They have a very nice texture, a delicate, yet not too sweet, flavor, and each one is big enough [almost] to enjoy as a piece of fruit on its own.
