How do you pack fresh foods while backpacking?

I love fresh fruit and vegetables but they usually only last a day or so backpacking. Do you have any tips for how you pack fruit or veggies into your meals? Do you use products like squeeze bottles? Any tips to share?

I always relish encountering a patch of wild strawberries or similar,  Perfect for keeping pack weight within bounds.  Not always predictable or possible, however.  Realistically, one just has to tough it out.

@hikermor Yum! That's the best! Do you just know from experience what's edible and what's not?

I love Talenti ice cream containers. They have a screw top (not liquid proof) and are clear so you can easily see their contents.

@PatrickB haha totally! Plus you get to eat the ice cream beforehand. I've used those for nuts/trail mix before.
