Skip the Fridge

Tomatoes keep best when stored at room temperature and out of direct sunlight. They’ll store between five days to two weeks but are always best when eaten quickly.

Pepper Selection

At NatureSweet, we only pick peppers at their best, meaning firm, brightly colored peppers with tight skin that are heavy for their size. No dull, shriveled or pitted peppers allowed.
