No, the cold simply retards growth of microorganisms and slows down changes that affect the quality

..with time, there is a downgrade of quality and of reduction of vitamins of fruits (and veggies), that is why they are called perishable commodities.

Freezing will greatly reduce the speed of this downgrade.
