Why do veggies decompose faster than fruits?
Fresh fruits and vegetables decompose at a rate comparable to a gas they emit. The more of it there is, the faster they decompose. The reason fruits last longer is that the more natural sugars in it, the less of the gas they emit. Hence, tomatoes and carrots decompose slower than celery and asparagus. Ventalating them has it's pro's and cons. Tied in a bag, the gas concentrates, but open in the drawer, nearby veggies that would last longer are effected. Lastly, ripening is the exact same process as decomposing, so if you ever need something to ripen faster, place it in close proximity to the least sweet produce that you have. Everything ripens faster on the counter due to warmth.

Why does fruit decompose?
Fruits decompose because of all the sugars inside of them turn old and mouldy. This makes the fruit then also turn mouldy and bacteria is produced. This causes the fruit to decompose. Thank you very much for using this answer!.. ( from Beth) Like all living matter.... when dead, cellular structres began decay.... So ....Fruit decompose because it was once life, and all life effectivly decays.... Nub -----------------Lawlerskatez-----------------
