Apple Facts

  • Americans eat approximately 19.6 pounds of fresh apples annually.
  • Apples are a member of the rose family.
  • Apples are available year-round.
  • The most popular variety in the United States is the Red Delicious.
  • Fresh apples float because 25 percent of their volume is air.
  • About 50% of apples grown in the United States are sold fresh, and 50% are processed into apple juice, apple sauce or dehydrated apple products.

TEMPERATURE: Store cartons under constant refrigeration at about 32 degrees F. with relative humidity of 90%.

CARTON PROTECTION: Keep apples in cartons with lids closed and away from foods with strong odors.

PREPARATION: Handle as little as possible to avoid bruising and skin damage. Prepare apple dishes just before serving to minimize browning (oxidation). Protect cut apples from oxidation by dipping them into a solution of one part citrus juice and three parts water.
