How to Store Seedless Grapes
If you bought fresh seedless grapes from the farmers market and don't plan on eating them right away, you can store them in your refrigerator for a few days or a freezer for several months. Make sure to buy only plump, ripe grapes free of any bruises or soft spots for the best quality.
Grapes make ideal snacks straight from your hand, or you can add them to both sweet and savory salads. Store the grapes properly to ensure the optimum taste.
Keep the seedless grapes in the perforated plastic bag they came in, or transfer them to one if they came in different packaging; perforated bags will allow air to circulate around the grapes.
Don't wash the grapes before storing them in the refrigerator. Rinse the fresh fruit under cool, running tap water just before eating them.
Seal the top of the bag with its zip-lock closure if it features one. Place the bag of grapes in your refrigerator's crisper drawer. Store the grapes in the refrigerator for five to seven days.
Rinse the grapes under cool, running tap water before freezing them. Allow the grapes to thoroughly air-dry or pat them dry with paper towels. Place the grapes in a freezer-safe plastic container featuring an airtight lid. Freeze the grapes in a freezer set at 0 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 to 12 months.
