Store Most Vegetables in the Crisper
Virtually all vegetables do best in the relatively humid environment of the crisper drawer, including artichokes, asparagus, beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, chiles, cucumbers, eggplant, fresh herbs, green beans, leafy greens, leeks, lettuce, mushrooms, peppers, radishes, scallions, summer squash, sugar snap peas, turnips, and zucchini. We also put corn in the crisper drawer. The sugar in corn begins to convert to starch from the moment the corn is picked; though this conversion is much slower in the supersweet varieties sold at most stores these days, storing corn in the refrigerator will slow the process even more.
Be sure to keep vegetables either in their original packaging or in partially open plastic produce bags (more specific tips below) to help prevent moisture loss.
