In my experiment, I tested two types of bags: Ziploc bags and "green bags" to see which one is the best choice to keep the peaches, lemons, and apples fresh for the longest time. I conducted three trials on the fruitsin those two types pf bags and the fruits placed on the counter served as my control group. All my observations about the changes in the fruits were recorded daily for seven days. I used the scoring chart to record the appearane of the fruits, took pictures and tested the fruits for the starch content with an iodine solution. The reason why i did that was so then my observations wouldn't just be based on my visual analysis. This led to my hypothesis proving correct becaue the fruits in the "green bags" stayed fresh for the longest time.
