Do NOT store apples in the same refridgerator as your carrots. The apples give off a gas that will change the flavor of your carrots. I only buy a few apples and keep them on the counter in the basket of fruit in my kitchen.

"Health researchers have determined that increased consumption of fruits and vegetables leads to reduced risk of heart disease and cancer. Nutritionists at the National Cancer Institute and other health professionals recommend eating at least five servings of fruits and vegetables a day. Apples are a good source of dietary fiber and contain small amounts of vitamins A and C.

A medium, raw, 2 1/2-inch apple contains 75 calories.

Select apples which are firm and free of bruises decay, cuts, holes, or shriveled skin. Apples should be ripe when picked to have good flavor, texture, and storing ability.

Storage

Store apples in the refrigerator at 32-35 degrees F.
Keep apples in a perforated plastic bag.
Check fruit occasionally and discard apples that show any signs of decay.

Food Safety Tip

Washing helps remove pesticide residue which may remain on the apple. Wash under clean, cool, tap water, scrub gently with clean vegetable brush and rinse again."
