Do you have a fruit bowl?

Unless itís ripening on the windowsill, I keep fruit in the fridge. What about you?

I have mentioned before that I love bowls. Lots of bowls. The left is my very favorite that DD brought me from Mťxico. On the right is my brand new (fake) fruit bowl. Letís see yours please.

I have the one on the right. A gift from my son and DIL.

Oops! Not quite. Mine is made from wood, not metal.

Generally no, but this leaf plate is holding a bumper crop of lemons. I like the Mexican bowl.

Yes, one for when it's apple season around here. I use apples in baking, so no need to refridgerate them. It's a Greek handpainted bowl that's been in the family for quite awhile. It's beautiful. I keep it on display on the counter without anything in it except for apples. Left my camera in the car so maybe I'll take a picture of it when I remember to bring it in.

All other fruit goes in the fridge.

I just loaded mine up with delicious peaches!
Mine is a crystal bowl. Crystal bowls probably aren't much of a thing anymore, but my grandmother and my mom have overflowing curio cabinets full of them.

I have a wire one with a banana hook in it that we got at Aldi. I have a few smaller bowls for cherries and apricots that fall through the wires on the larger one.

Yes, a big clear salad type bowl full of bananas. Apples go in the fridge. We always have both. When we have other stuff, depending on what it is depends on where it goes.

Bowl

I have a bowl that is designated as a fruit bowl from my dishes set, but it is way too small, IMO. Maybe I could fit a few plums or nectarines, or a nice bunch of grapes. I use it to serve small amounts of rice or mashed potatoes.

I have a fruit basket for bananas and stone fruit. I have a "salsa bowl" where I keep tomatoes, avocado, lime, and lemon.

We have a long narrow tray that holds bananas, garlic, and Ace hardware store coupons! All other fruit is in the refrigerator. Unless I've gotten ambitious and cut some fruit up so we'll eat it!

I store everything in the fridge but I have a few bowls that were purchased for that purpose. I use them for other things though.

We have an old family friend who has his own pottery business. I have one of his larger bowls which was given to me for fruit, it makes a nice popcorn bowl


Mine is different colors but this is an example:

I love the idea of a “salsa bowl.”

This platter has a crack in it so it can't be used for serving food but I think it's so pretty that I can't bring myself to throw it out. It's okay for holding fruit, in this case, an inordinate amount of avocados (Man loves his avocados!) and a butternut squash. It occasionally holds peaches and pears but mostly I keep fruit in the fridge.

ETA: Man is the avocado concierge and puts them in the fridge when they get to the right ripeness and then the platter holds Other Things.

I have a fruit bowl for apples and bananas. The rest of my fruit stays in the fridge. My fruit bowl and coffee maker are the only two things I leave out on my kitchen counters. Clean looking, bare kitchen counters make me happy. I hate when there are tons of things on Kitchen counters.

My mom always had a filled fruit bowl on the table and this is what we do as well. It is a ceramic bowl with two birds sitting on the rim. It's packed up right now otherwise I'd post a picture.

I have a fruit bowl that I love, but I donít usually put anything in it. It was my momís, and when we cleaned out her closet it was way in the back covered with dust. As soon as I saw it I loved it. I keep it on my dining room table.

Mine is actually a terra cotta oven-to-table breadwarmer but I so rarely serve bread these days that I've given it over to fruit. Right now I'm mostly eating melon so I don't have any fruit in it.

I put onions, apples, avocados, and bananas in my bowl on the counter. Right now I only have onions and apples. The bowl is bigger than it looks. I made it in a pottery class where you paint a bowl with friends. It was fun.

Sometimes I use a smaller bowl if I don't have much to put in it or if I just want a change.

My mom always had a fruit bowl and so do I. Mine is a Munising wooden salad bowl. It currently has a few bananas that need to be eaten soon as well as a tomato and a few peaches. It is more of a rustic look.

I prefer most of my fruit cold, so I keep it in the fridge. Fruit flies also love our house, so we try to keep all fruit sealed if it is out. We always keep tomatoes stored in the 1970ís domed glass cake plate that belonged to my mom. I donít like tomatoes chilled.

Green Bunny, I am with Man. Avocados all day, every day!

I have something like this sitting on the counter that dh picked up somewhere. The baskets are rectangular rather than round, though. It usually holds avocados on top (until they are overripe and need to go into the fridge), bananas and apples and pears on other tiers.

I have a fruit plate because it's mainly soft fruits. It holds my bananas, ripening mangos or nectarines, and lemons because they are easier to juice when they are not cold. The rest of the fruit is in the fridge.

I have the exact wooden bowl that catwoman posted. I sometimes just use a fiesta bowl for fruits in the winter (apples, oranges and grapes). One thing about a bowl is it's easily accessible and helps me remember to grab a piece.

I do have one of those metal coated stand things with a hook for bananas and a place at the bottom for other fruit. I mainly use if for bananas because I like all fruits except bananas cold.
