Veggie Shelf outside the fridge


polentaWe tend to think zucchini, aubergine, cucumber, etc. as vegetables but they are biologically fruits.

This shelf gives them a space to be outside the fridge. Also through the ritual to water them everyday, they will stay fresh.

While many fruits and vegetables benefit from the low storage temperature in a refrigerator (around 40 degrees F or 4.5 degrees C), this is not true for all of them. So-called fruit vegetables such as peppers, courgettes, aubergines and tomatoes require higher temperatures and decay more rapidly in the refrigerator. They need high relative humidity, though. The shelf pictured above gives these vegetables a suitable space. Through the ritual of watering them everyday, they will stay fresh. The water not only raises humidity but also cools the produce, assuring a temperature that is higher than that in the refrigerator but lower than that in the room.
