We all know the defeating feeling of slicing into a brown avocado. Perhaps it was tucked into the back of your pantry or hidden under your apples and bananas. Don't repeat this scenario, and instead, heed our trick to not letting your produce go to waste: keep it on display.
Having a way to display your fruit that’s both pretty and organized puts it front and center, ensuring you use all produce at its prime. Since there are so many fruits that are best not refrigerated—plums, peaches, pineapples, avocados, bananas, and citrus, just to name a few—proper storage is key to savoring fruits at their best and keeping an organized kitchen.
That’s why we shopped for stylish ways to display fresh produce in your home. May you never let an avocado go mushy again.
TOMSHOO 2 Tier Fruit Basket
There are countless ways to put this two-tier basket to work. Displaying produce? Definitely. Corralling art supplies? Another great option. The wooden handle is key for easy carrying, making this style perfect for bringing condiments to an outdoor dining table too. (Need we go on?) Best yet, at under $11, it’s budget-friendly.
Evbopa Hanging Fruit Hammock
Short on counter space? This hand-woven fruit hammock clears counter space by hanging from the underside of your upper cabinets. Simply screw in the hooks and voila, fruit storage is solved. Just save this one for your larger fruits, like bananas, avocados, and apples, since your clementines and kumquats will likely fall through.
YAMAZAKI Metal Fruit Basket
Yamazaki is one of our first stops for all sleek and sensible home items, from coat racks to hampers to, yes, decorative fruit bowls. Their Japanese-designed pieces, including this steel bowl with wooden handles, are simple yet always serve a purpose.
Multiple coats of a food-safe powder coating are applied to the steel, protecting against moisture from your fruit and giving it a slightly textured surface, while the open design ensures plenty of airflow around all your farmer's market goodies.

You could also hang it in your entryway as a catch-all for your everyday essentials, or in a kid’s bedroom as a safe space for beloved stuffies.
Uncommon Goods Just Ripe Fruit Bowl
This brilliant design—part dishwasher-safe glass bowl, part bamboo fruit tray, part banana hook—lets you keep an eye on all your produce, whether it’s ripe or not quite yet. Items that are ready to be consumed can sit on the tray, while the ones that need a few more days (looking at you, avocados) can ripen in the bowl.
Fanmusic Countertop Fruit Storage Basket
Sleek and sturdy—that’s the look and feel you’ll get with this no-frills fruit basket. The two handles ensure it’s easy to carry, no matter how many lemons and limes you’ve piled into it. This basket measures nearly 11 inches across, so be sure you have ample space, perhaps on a kitchen island, to display it.
Juvale 2 Pack Black Mesh Fruit Baskets with Lids for Fruits
If you prefer to cover your fruit—perhaps to keep flies or other pests away—opt for this pair of mesh iron baskets. Each set comes with two baskets and two covers, and both baskets measure 10 inches in diameter and seven inches tall with the lid on.

Is this a fruit basket or a sculptural art piece? Fill it full of fruits (or vegetables or pastries or you name it), then show it off as a centerpiece to your kitchen island or dining table. Soft pads on the bottom prevent it from sliding or scratching, and the airflow in the hollow design allows fruits to stay fresher, longer. It’s pretty and practical—our favorite combination.
Merysen Large 3 Tier Bamboo Fruit Basket Stan
Add this waterproof bamboo fruit stand to your kitchen for a natural, neutral piece that the bright hues of your produce aisle finds will pop against.

This design also comes in a two-tier option, if you prefer.
SIN Prong Bowl
Turn your kitchen counter into a mini art museum when you highlight this ceramic fruit bowl.

It’s one-of-a-kind and a true piece of art.
