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.
Wait and wash apples just before using.
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.
