How do i store apples and how long will they keep? 

Apples will typically keep for several months if kept at a sustained cool temperature. Good ventilation and cool temperature are key to keeping them fresh for as long as possible. We always suggest placing your apples in a basement or refrigerator. 

What apples should i use in baking? 

You can use any variety or combination, but like many things in life, choosing an apple for cooking or baking really comes down to personal preference. However, we do have several apples that we recommend to folks looking to use them in the kitchen. For cooked apples golden and red delicious are great options. Bakers find that the Granny Smith, Mutsu, Jonagold, or Staymen Winesap are great options.


We like to eat them all! It's all a matter of what tastes you like. Are you a fan of tart or sweet? Soft or hard? There is an apple for everyone. Come see is and we'll help you find your new favorite.
