Frequently Asked Questions
How do I pick a perfect apple?
When selecting apples in the store, steer clear of apples with bruises or blemishes. Bruised apples decay much faster. The ideal apple will be smooth, blemish-free, and firm to the touch.
How should I store my apples?
Warm temperatures speed up ripening and can cause apples to soften, so refrigerate apples to make them last longer. Well-stored, bruise-free apples can last as long as 90 days!
Apples tend to absorb flavors from strong-scented foods. To prevent this from happening, simply keep them away from strong-smelling foods, such as onions and garlic, or keep apples enclosed in a plastic bag. Apples also emit a non-harmful, naturally occurring gas called ethylene. Ethylene actually speeds up the ripening of other produce items, so keep apples in a plastic bag to help prevent this from happening. Without ethylene, some items, such as bananas, would never ripen.
To avoid discoloration, keep the surface of apples dry.
Should I rinse my apple before eating?
Yes. Always wash your apples before consuming. This is true of all fresh produce. Do not rinse until just before ready to use.
Does an apple peel contain a lot of its nutrients?
Yes, they do! About half of the apple’s Vitamin C content is found just under the skin and most of the apple’s insoluble fiber is found in the skin, too.
