Frequently Asked Questions About Apples
 

Eating out of hand is still America's favorite way to enjoy this all-around nutrition packed fruit, but it's well worth the effort to try it in pies, cakes, and sauces.

 
How do I choose a good apple?
You don't have to be a produce expert to pick a perfect apple. Look for good color and a skin free of deep blemishes. Much of being happy with your choice is knowing a little about the variety you prefer. Each type of apple has its own personality, so try them until you find some favorites.
 
How should I store apples?
We keep apples after harvest for months here at Rendleman Orchards in large cold storage rooms which are very similar to your own refrigerator at home. Apples store best at 32 degrees, but, of course, that temperature would be too chilly for some of your other produce. Controlled humidity would be nice, but, regardless, the crisper drawer is the best area of the refrigerator for apples. To increase humidity, place a damp cloth or paper towel over fruit.
What are some of the health benefits of eating apples?
If you are an apple lover, as we all are, you're getting more than a delicious treat. According to recent studies published by Mayo Clinic, apples are loaded with powerful antioxidant nutrients called flavenoids and polyphenols-collectively known as phytochemicals-that may help prevent or fight cancer. Don't forget, too, apples, especially with their peelings, are chock full of fiber and vitamins. Increasingly, we are finding "an apple a day keeps the doctor away" is an old adage that proves true for modern times.
