Serene Nature House recommends that you set the two drawers in the fridge at a high humidity setting which means that you set the drawers to close off completely from bringing in air. You use these drawers for your greens, cruciferous vegetables, cucumbers, berries, eggplants and herbs. For your other fruits, avocados, mushrooms and bananas you can you use the middle or top shelf.
