Fruit of the Week: Apple pt. 4

Selection and Storage:
– When selecting apples, choose firm apples that are bright in colour, the firmer an apple is the crunchier it will be
– Test the apple for soft spots and look for discoloration
– Apples that have pressure marks/bruises on the skin will likely have a mottled pulp underneath
– Fresh apples can be stored in the fridge for 2 to 3 weeks or at room temperature for up to 2 to 3 days
– Do not store apples next to fruits such as bananas or peaches as the ethylene produced by such fruits can cause each other to ripen or spoil more quickly
