    Well there has to be a easier way than this surely I get worried it will go mouldy?

    Ah yes I see your point.

    A leaf that's nearing the end of it's life will look overall a bit tatty, a bit yellowy and will possibly be a bit less rigid. One that's diseased will have definite signs of something abnormal. Sorry, it's not easy to describe, but I think you would recognise the difference if you saw it. Most leaves at this time of the year will just be old and looking sorry for themselves.

    I agree They look really good with nice unblemished skin I would put them in a box somewhere cool and arrange them so they don't touch each other. Then keep checking them to see when they are ripe.

    ETA I've just remembered you've got a cellar haven't you. I'd put them in there.

    Oh right - I was thinking of using brown paper & shoving them in one of the fridge drawers. Why can't they touch one another?
