Best Common Ways for Storing Apples to Keep Them Fresh

Best Common Ways for Storing Apples to Keep Them Fresh Handle Them Like Eggs According to Schultz, people need to be more gentle with their fruit. “The adage is true—one bad apple spoils the bunch,” says the farmer. If the apple has even a little bruise, ethylene gets emitted faster, and then everything around it rots and spoils faster.

Lower the Temperature Surprisingly, apples can (and should) be stored at super-low temperatures, ideally anywhere from 31 to 35 degrees. “Some produce doesn’t like to be cold,” says Schultz. “If you put summer squash in there at 40 degrees, it’ll start breaking down faster. But apples can take 30 degrees. At 29 degrees, they’ll start freezing.” Schultz suggests storing the apples in a “beer fridge”i.e., an extra fridge in the basement or garage that you don’t open as often as the one in your kitchen, and can keep at a lower temperature. If you don’t have access to one of these magical fridges, though, just keep your apples in the crisper drawer without any other products (as they emit ethylene, other fruits and vegetables will spoil faster), and keep the fridge as low as you can without freezing everything else in there.

Add Humidity At the grocery store, fruit is misted regularly to add humidity substitute and maintain freshness, but at home, you probably don’t have the time or elaborate mechanism in place to make that happen. Instead, cover them in a damp paper towel, or leave them in the plastic produce bag to trap the humidity, but poke a few holes in it so as not to trap the ethylene gas.
