Why does celery go limp in the refrigerator?

This is what the crisper drawer in your fridge is ostensibly for: it supposedly keeps the humidity in and prevents your carrots from drying out and your celery from going all limp (which of course is also caused by it drying out). Some of the most common tips involve standing celery upright in a pitcher of water.

Keeping this in consideration, what is the best way to store celery in the refrigerator?

Keep celery heads whole, wrap them up tightly in aluminum foil, and then keep them in the refrigerator crisper drawer as usual. The plastic bag your celery came in traps in the ethylene it produces, which hastens its vegetal demise.

How do I store celery in the fridge?

Storing celery in it will keep the celery crisp, even for weeks. Simply wrap the celery in the aluminum foil either cut or intact, and do so tightly. You may want to place the celery on a slightly damp paper towel before you wrap it in the foil. Place the wrapped celery in the refrigerator.

How long can you keep celery in the refrigerator?

Chopped raw celery will last for 1 to 2 weeks in the refrigerator. How long does celery last in the fridge once it has been cooked? Cooked celery will usually stay good for 3 to 5 days in the refrigerator and 10 to 12 months in the freezer. Can you freeze celery?
