Some supermarkets like Morrisons have taken to spraying some of their fresh veg with water in a fine mist “to help retain freshness” – allegedly !!!! Why did farmers in the old days store crops in barns to “dry them off” – food that lasted 4-6 months throught the winter…. – dry food will last a LOT longer than wet food…. the supermarkets want us to buy more and more – that’s why they wet it – in the hope it will go off quicker. Dry your veggies before putting in the fridge, or wrap them in kitchen towel for a while first….. they WILL last longer.
