Keep your apples in a cool, dry place:
in the cellar, the fridge or
– in winter –
. Apples are so-called climacteric fruits, meaning they keep ripening in storage. During this process, they produce ethylene gas, a substance which makes other fruits ripen faster too.
So keep your apples away from other fruits.
Pack your apples in an
airtight container or plastic bag
to lengthen their shelf-life. This oxygen-deficient atmosphere slows down the ripening and aging process and the apples don’t dry out as fast. When stored covered at room temperature, the shelf life of a fresh South Tyrolean apple is about ten days. A
cut apple should be eaten up right away
, as when cut, it starts to lose its natural protective functions.
