How Do You Like Them Apples?


Apples bring a welcome freshness to the colder weather months, adding bright tastes and exciting textures to fall and winter seasonal dishes. There are 2,500 varieties of apples in the U.S. that range in fruitiness, acidity, sweetness, juiciness and crispness. Whether you’re looking for apples that are sweet, tart or anywhere in between, there’s an abundance of distinct and delicious apples from around the world to explore and enjoy! 

Selection & Storage Tips: Choose apples that are firm, uniform in color and bruise and blemish-free. A fresh, high-quality apple will also give off a pleasant aroma. Apples will keep the longest in an environment that’s 32°F with 90% humidity. If you can’t maintain these exact conditions, the best way to retain the fresh-picked flavor of apples is to store them in the coldest part of the refrigerator. Also, store apples away from other fruits and vegetables, as they give off ethylene gas, which speeds the decay of nearby produce.
