Full Answer

For example, fresh cut pumpkin will last 2 to 3 days in the refrigerator and up to 8 months in the freezer. If it is a carved pumpkin, it can last up to 8 days in good shape before it begins to deteriorate. To extend a carved pumpkin's life, remove the pulp and seeds from its interior, and spray a bleach and water mixture onto the entire surface. After using the bleach spray to prevent rotting problems, the pumpkin can be rubbed with petroleum jelly.

  • Q:

    How long does cheese last?

    A:

    The lifespan of cheese depends largely on its type as soft and processed cheeses stay fresh for one to three weeks after opening, while hard or unprocessed cheeses may retain their quality for several months after purchasing. Generally, natural cheeses that are not processed and cheeses stored in chunks, rather than shreds, stay fresh far longer than their softer or processed counterparts. Although many cheeses come with "best by" dates, proper handling and storage techniques may either shorten or lengthen the lifespans of cheeses.
