How to Select, Store and Handle Apples

Look for apples firm to the touch.

T

Visually inspect your apples before buying. Specks or other marks come from nature and don’t signal a bad apple, but apples with bruising or decay should be avoided.

You can store apples in the refrigerator for up to 2 months.

Get familiar with the different varieties of apples! With so many different colors, characteristics and flavor profiles, there’s an apple for everyone and every occasion.

TRADE
