How to Select Spinach

  • Select spinach that appears as fresh as possible, with bright green leaves and no signs of yellowing, wilting, or bruising.
  • Avoid spinach with a slimy coating. Sliminess appears when the spinach gets old and begins to decay.

How to Store Spinach

  • Spinach does not have a long shelf life, but it will last up to five days in your refrigerator.
  • Store spinach in the coldest, driest part the fridge, usually the crisper drawer. Moisture can cause the spinach to wilt and become slimy faster.
  • Avoid washing your spinach until you are ready to serve it.
