Tips for Storing Apples
When storing Apples, remember that they need to be kept cold and moist. Store them in the refrigerator in a perforated plastic bag so that they retain their moisture.
Apples produce ethylene gas at a high rate, and so can adversely affect produce that is ethylene sensitive if they are stored together. Examples include broccoli, kiwi, lettuce and tomatoes.
Apples themselves are sensitive to ethylene and shouldn’t be stored with high ethylene producers such as peaches, pears, or avocados.
Apples can also be adversely affected by odor. Don’t store onions and garlic with your apples.
Apples can be stored for 1 to 8 months.
