"Bananas: Bananas release high levels of ethylene gas, so store them alone on the counter. Once they're ripe, move bananas to the fridge for a couple of days until you're ready to eat them. Buy bananas that are still a little green so they don't get overripe too quickly.

Berries: Blackberries, blueberries, raspberries and strawberries should be refrigerated in a sealed container with a little airflow and lined with towels to prevent the buildup of moisture. Keep the lid slightly ajar or use a container with holes in it.

Broccoli: Since broccoli is a winter vegetable, it can handle cold temperatures. Keep whole heads of broccoli in the cool crisper drawer and wrap them in a damp towel to stay fresh."
