How to Tell if Vegetables Are Overripe


For peak nutritional value and freshness, choose vegetables that are at their peak ripeness. Once a vegetable becomes overripe, it begins to lose its healthful benefits, ultimately decaying to a mushy science experiment in the back of your refrigerator.

Tips & Warnings

  • Double bag a cut onion to reduce the smell permeating your refrigerator.
  • Place the ends of freshly bought asparagus in cold water to keep them crisp.
  • Blanch fresh vegetables and freeze them to preserve freshness and nutritional value.
  • Add overripe veggies to your compost pile or your yard waste container so they're recycled.
