Kotaku editor Mark Serrels is a fiend for fruit. So the other day he walks into the office and says to me: “This is a life hack you have to run. Granny Smith apples taste so much better when they’re refrigerated, it’s off the chart.”

I’m not a big apple eater, so I wasn’t disposed to test this assertion. However, Mark is a very fussy consumer so I’m prepared to take his word for it.
Many fruits benefit from not being kept in the fridge, and ideally you’ll eat your fruit and veg close to purchase date, so refrigeration isn’t always necessary. But if you’re an apple addict, this is worth a try.
My personal favourite when it comes to chilled fruit in summer is frozen grapes: those are hard to beat as a quick snack. What fruit do you find yourself putting in the fridge, and what just stays in the bowl? Tell us in the comments.
