Try to find a cool corner of your garage or basement where the temperature stays above 35 but below 60 degrees F (above 1.6 but below 15.5 degrees C). If you think your storage area might freeze or get too warm at times, you can build two walls to enclose a corner to provide an even-temperature fruit closet. Add some insulation, and remember to allow plenty of air circulation. Don t stack produce up in a big pile, but spread your vegetables out evenly on a shelf (not on the floor).
