Fresh as in no brown fresh? A squirt of lemon juice or a soak in salt water (then rinsed, not the lemon juice) would do that. If you use a little more lemon juice on apples that are just blah, let them sit for a day or two, they get a really great flavor, kind of like a pinapple guava (yah, gotta have one, there is no way to describe the taste, but it's good).

As for any other fresh ideas, I am stumped.

I learned this as a supermarket demonstrator.
Soak the cut-up fruit in pineapple juice. It works
beautifully!

Lemon or pineapple juice work great. There is also a product called Fruit Fresh. It is powdered citric acid, which is what is in lemon and pineapple juice that keeps the fruit from turning. I use it when I am canning or freezing to keep my fruit looking fresh all the time. It is available in your grocery in the spice aisle or near canning supplies, not very expensive.

Lime juice also works. My kids like it because it gives a little different flavor. But anything acidic will discourage oxidization.

I have found that for sliced strawberries if I sprinkle a little Splenda on them, they do not get mushy as quickly as they do with regular sugar.
