Facts about Apples

Good apples for eating fresh are:

Macintosh, Macoun, Red & Golden Delicious, Cortland.

Choose  firm, well shaped apples without bruises.

Small quantities of apples should be stored in a plastic bag in the Refrigerator.

Be sure that there are some air holes in the bag to keep the apples from mushing.

If you have large quantities of apples, store in a dark, cool place such as a cellar or root cellar.
