White/Blue Potatoes

Grower: Blue Goose Farm/Clarion River Organics

Store: Store potatoes in a cool, well ventilated place. Colder temperatures lower than 50 degrees, such as in the refrigerator, cause a potato’s starch to convert to sugar, resulting in a sweet taste and discoloration when cooked.

Hydroponic Lettuce

Grower: Harmony Grove Farm

Store: Leave the heads intact and unwashed until you use them. Then, place them in the crisper drawer in your fridge with some paper towels.They’ll absorb any excess moisture, so your lettuce doesn’t spoil prematurely.  Lettuce bruises easily, so be careful not to shove other foods up against it. Using a storage container is better than a bag, which can end up squished against other items.

Scallion Microgreens

Grower: Harmony Grove Farm

Store: Keep microgreens between damp paper towels, and make sure they are cold and covered in a resealable bag or container. Wrapped this way, they’ll last in the fridge for about a week

Rome Apples

Grower: Kistaco Farm

Store: Keep them cool. The ideal storage temperature is 30 to 35 degrees F. with 90 to 95 percent relative humidity. If you don’t have a lot of apples, the refrigerator is a good option. Place them in the crisper drawer in a plastic bag with holes in it or cover the apples with a damp paper towel.  These apples are best used to cook with.

Baby Mustard Greens/Purple Mizuna 

Grower: Tuscarora Organics Cooperative

Store: Do not wash mustard greens before storing as the exposure to water encourages spoilage. Place greens in a plastic storage bag and wrap the bag tightly, squeezing out as much of the air from the bag as possible. Place in refrigerator where it will keep fresh for up to 5 days.
