  • Question About Storing My Green Beans In Hot Queensland Climate

    Hi,

    I was wondering if storing my green beans in one of those cheap, plain styrofoam, supermarket eskies, would keep them cooler than the hot space around them? Or would it be just as hot in the esky as the cupboard I want to put them in?

    And also, would it prevent the beans from breathing?

    Cheers,

    FG.

    G'day FG...

    I wouldn't seal the beans inside any kind of airtight container, especially one that is essentially plastic.
    Far better to leave 'em in the bags the green comes in and then store in a cool, dark and dry cupboard or similar...

      Alternatively, would a thermoelectric wine cooler be okay, set at around 10˚c? That would have more air flow I would imagine.

        I reckon 10C would be a tad too cool and would probably invite condensation to form on the beans every time you remove them.
        If it's at all possible, I'd prefer a setting of around 20C. Pretty sure that will be fine...

          I lived in Cairns for 8 years - I just stored the beans on the tiled floor of the pantry and never had any issues.
