How To Store

Warm temperatures tend to rob apples of their crispness and flavor. Store apples in plastic bag in the refrigerator crisper or drawer away from vegetables. Apples can be kept in the refrigerator for up to six weeks. Store apples purchased in bulk in a cool, moist place, away from sunlight.

How To Select

Choose firm apples that are smooth and have unblemished skin, without bruises. Do not select apples that dent when pressing your fingers against the skin.
The choice of apple you select depends on how you plan to use it. See apple varieties for suggestions on which are good for eating out of hand, or for use in salads, cooking or baking.

Usage Tips

Wash apples thoroughly before eating or cutting.
