FRUIT AND VEGETABLES TO KEEP APART:

 

Some fruits and veggies produce a lot of a gas called ethylene as they ripen. Others are particularly sensitive to ethylene. So keep those away from each other. Or, conversely, put one close to another if you're attempting to hasten ripening. For example keeping bananas too close to an avocado will ripen the avocado faster.
