Quick Basil Question

Will fresh-picked basil stay green in the fridge over several days?

We are heading out of town in a couple of days. However, my basil seriously needs to be picked (again) now, but I have no time available before we leave to process it into pesto. Ideally, I'd like to just pick it and toss it into the fridge and process it all when we get back. Those pre-packaged basil leaves you get in the supermarket stay nice and green for a good long time, so why shouldn't mine? Right?

Should I store it loose? In baggies? A large container?


(In case you're wondering, I don't want to wait until I get back to pick the basil because I'm afraid it might start flowering before then, which can sometimes make the basil bitter.)
