Storage Guidelines for Prunes Store them in a cool, dry place, but do not refrigerate them. The moisture in the refrigerator can cause a bit of moisture in the prunes, and you may get soggy or dull prunes the next time you consume them. To keep them crisp and fresh, make sure they are away from moisture.
Most dried fruits can be stored for 1 year at 60ºF, 6 months at 80ºF. Vegetables have about half the shelf-life of fruits. Foods that are packaged seemingly “bone dry” can spoil if moisture is reabsorbed during storage. Foods affected by moisture, but not spoiled, should be used immediately or redried and repackaged.
