How to buy apples

     The most important thing to look for when buying apples is soft spots. Soft spots generally result from bruises obtained during shipping. Also avoid apples with discolored spots and/or holes.

     Fresh apples that are going to be eaten within a week should be stored at room temperature in a dry place. For longer storage, apples should be placed in a plastic bag and stored in a refrigerator.
