Fruit punnets, most commonly used for berries, are tiny plastic containers (we make ours from recyclable plastic). These punnets have small holes in them that allow the fruit to breathe and keep them fresher for longer. Farmers often use large punnets (which are more like crates) during the fruit picking process, while smaller ones are used for sale. You’ll see the smaller punnets in any supermarket or green grocer.
Although fruit punnets are usually used for berries, they’re also popular for mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, dates, and small fruits such as kiwifruit. However, you can basically store any fruit or vegetable in a punnet — as long as it fits.
