I have most veg for over a week and I have had apples in the fridge for months.
They may not be in tip top but they have not gone bad. most fruit last a week but not all. Bananas I don't eat until they go black any way.

||My broccoli lasts well over a week, but my peaches rot the next day... Not sure this list is entirely accurate...|

||I consider that they are good until they are brown, wilted, soft etc.. Is someone going to actually go by a chart?|

|My fruits/veggies last longer than this article suggests too - but then again, I'm not too fussy! :) When I have a bag of chopped lettuce or spinach, I fold a paper towel or two and tuck it into the bag and fold it over snugly. (I learned that trick from my Mom - seems to work well.)|

||I USE THE VEGGIE BAGS FROM ZIPLOC AND THEY REALLY WORK. I GO TO THE GROCERY ONCE A WEEK FOR VEGGIES SO THEY NEED TO STAY FRESH FOR 7 DAYS. THE BAGS DO WORK WELL FOR OUR FAMILY, NO MOISTURE PROBLEM OR WILTING..|
