Storing fruits & veggies. Help!

I really want the fruit and veggie box from Angel Food. I usually buy canned/frozen veggies and fruit because storage is more convenient. but it's a new year and I'd like to start eating more fresh produce... especially at the price. How do you store these to keep them fresh for as long as possible? I really have NO clue and I don't want to spend the money to have everything rot on me before we can eat it. How long do each of these generally last? Wow, I'm clueless, aren't I? Thanks for your help.
