How to Select

Pick up the apple and gently press a small area of the fruit's skin. It should be firm to the touch. Avoid apples that are noticeably soft, discolored, or indent easily after you press the skin.

How to Store

Apples should be stored in the refrigerator and are best if used within 2 weeks.
