Does anyone have any tips on storing raspberries.  When I pick them, I pick only the ones in best condition.  If I do not use them the same day, I store them in the fridge uncovered.  But by the next day they have all gone soft and dark.  What am I doing wrong.  I thought they would have lasted overnight like strawberries do, as I like to have them on my breakfast cereal.

Mine do much the same, though I think keeping them covered helps a bit, so I can only assume that shop bought rasps are picked before they are fully ripe so that they last a bit longer.

Keep them covered and stored in the fruit section of your fridge on a modest temp and you should be OK for overnight storage.

You need to store them in the fridge covered and keep in your veg section, at the bottom of the fridge.
They will last three days like this.
I put mine in a rectangular shallow pyrex dish 11" x 8" with the plastic lid, but I'm sure cling film will work just as well.
Best not to wash them until using and do not pile the raspberries on top of each other.
Raspberries freeze very well too.
