Storing fruits in a vacuum-sealed bag can help them last longer than if they were stored in a traditional container with a lid. Vacuum sealers remove the air around the fruits, which can cause them to spoil. Without air, fruits can’t oxidize, and they will stay fresh for a longer period of time.
How long does vacuum sealed fruit last? It depends on the type of fruits and how they were stored before they were sealed. For example, vacuum sealed apples can last up to two months, while vacuum sealed grapes can last up to two weeks.
Not to mention vacuum sealed fruits’ shelf life also depends on how they are stored, I mean if they are stored in a refrigerator or a freezer or in normal room temperature. The shelf life will be different for different types of storage.
However, usually fruits can last up to 6 months to 3 years depending on the situation.
