How are apples best stored?
In the fridge or in the cellar, best cool under 5 °C, in the dark. Apples give off a gas (ethylene) which makes fruit and vegetables located in close proximity ripen quicker. Apples should be stored separately if possible.
Storage apples keep for 2 – 3 months under optimal conditions.
Attention: Even in the refrigerator, apples may cause other vegetables, e.g. lettuce, to spoil faster.
