More seriously, I do have a lot more food spoilage down here (even with air conditioning), and the threat of mold is ever-present.
Super true. We learned to buy fruit and veggies in small quantities because of spoilage.
Dont they have fridges, we keep all our fruit and veg (except bananas and potatoes) in the fridge.

Nope. Except for apples or melons. Those are fine chilled. Everything else—bananas, cherries, grapes, oranges—are in bowls in the kitchen.

I won’t eat fruit unless it comes out of the fridge, I like it to be cold. I don’t like room temperature oranges or apples etc..

Funny because apples are one of the few I dont put in the fridge. I love chilled grapes, cherries, berries.

I've had to put cherries in the fridge a few times this summer because the damned fruit flies have been bad this year. Cold cherries feel way wrong.

I chill apples, berries, and fruit that gets overripe fast like peaches or (okay, only technically a fruit) avocado. I leave citrus and bananas on the counter with tomatoes, onions, and potatoes.

😂 I imagined your funniest quip to date.

Actually agree about cherries not from the fridge but suspect that is because I associate cherries with Christmas and winter.

The only cherries I can associate with winter are maraschino, and that's in my mother's shortbread Christmas cookies. I'd say we have maybe another week or two of decent cherries left here until next summer.

I hate those maraschino cherries. Remember as a kid having to dig them out of the Christmas cake.

They're a neutral fruit for me. They ain't the star of the snack or dessert, but they don't ruin things. Like a competent drummer.

I like them for two things: certain cocktails (usually manhattans) and fruitcake, which I know isn’t a popular food, but I always liked.

We have a cherry tree out front. This year I made a low sugar jam with whiskey. It’s delightful on sharp cheddar.
