APPLE RIPENING

Apples on the outside of the tree ripen before apples on the inside and apples Do Not continue to ripen once picked.     

HOW TO PICK

Roll the apple upwards off the branch and give it a little twist, Do Not pull straight away from the tree.  Also Do Not shake the branch or tree.

HANDLE WITH CARE

Try not to bruise, as the apple will go bad more quickly.

CLEANING

Wait and wash apples just before using.  

STORAGE

Store apples in a cool dark place. If possible store in the  refrigerator in their own drawer.  If storing in the basement or root cellar, Do Not store with potatoes.
