Apple-eating Tips

To maximize your apple-eating experience, follow these simple tips for selecting, handling, storing and preparing fresh apples. An apples skin should be shiny, dull appearing apples won’t be crisp and tasty.

  • Select apples that are bruise-free and handle them gently to prevent bruising.
  • Select apples that are firm to the touch.
  • The refrigerator is your friend! Though it might be tempting to display apples in a fruit bowl, it is best to store your apples in the refrigerator to slow ripening and maintain flavor. A properly refrigerated apple keeps longer.
  • Store your apples away from strong smelling foods to prevent them from absorbing unpleasant odors.
  • Wash your apples in cool water before serving.
  • When serving sliced or diced apples, coat them in a mixture of one part lemon juice to three parts water or in vitamin C-fortified 100% apple juice to reduce browning.
