The Appeal of Apples

Winter brings to mind the aroma and flavor of spiced cider, apple crisp fresh from the oven, taffy apples, and the crunch of biting into a crisp, juicy apple. Enjoy our Hurry-up Baked Apples as a quick, tasty dessert, a snack, or side dish.

How should I store apples to keep their quality as long as possible?
  • Apples like cool temperatures and high humidity. Refrigerate or store in a cool location.
  • Avoid storing apples with bananas or tomatoes. The ethylene gas these fruits naturally release causes apples to soften.
  • To store apples in an unheated shed or basement, leave them in a cardboard box out of direct sunlight.
  • Apples bruise easily so handle them gently to avoid fruit decay.
