How to store green beans

The best way to store green beans is in the refrigerator. Here are a few tips for storing green beans:

  1. Keep them dry: Make sure to dry the green beans thoroughly before storing them, as any excess moisture can cause them to rot or wilt quickly.

  2. Keep them in the refrigerator: Green beans should be stored in the refrigerator at a temperature between 32-40°F (0-4°C).

  3. Use them within a week: Green beans can last up to a week in the refrigerator if stored properly.

  4. Store them in a perforated plastic bag: You can store green beans in a perforated plastic bag, this will allow air to circulate around the beans while keeping them fresh.

  5. Keep them away from ethylene-producing fruits: Green beans are sensitive to ethylene, a gas produced by some fruits (such as apples, bananas, and tomatoes) that can cause them to ripen and spoil faster.

  6. Do not wash them before storing: If the green beans are not too dirty, it's best to store them unwashed, as washing can cause them to spoil faster.

It's important to note that green beans can absorb odours from other foods in the refrigerator, so make sure to store them away from strong-smelling foods. Also, when storing green beans, make sure they are dry and in a clean, airtight container to prevent contamination.
