How Long Does Whole Pomegranate Stay Fresh In The Fridge?
Whole pomegranates can only last on the counter for one to two weeks, but when you store them in the fridge, they can last for one to two months.
This will give you much more time to deseed the fruit and use them in various dishes. It will also protect them from ripening too quickly if your kitchen gets lots of sunlight.
When storing whole pomegranates in the fridge, keep them in one of the crisper drawers, which preserves produce like pomegranates by limiting the airflow.
If you’re worried about moisture, wrap the pomegranates in paper towels and store them in a plastic bag. The fridge's temperature should be set at 40 degrees Fahrenheit or below.
If you can’t use the fruit within two months, the best option is to remove the seeds and freeze them for up to a year. Keep in mind that the seeds may become soggy when defrosted.
