It’s apple season.

Washington apples are delicious all year round, but they are especially juicy and sweet in October and November. We source from the finest growers in the Pacific Northwest who pick our Ambrosia, Fuji, and Honeycrisp apples when they are most flavorful.

Tips

  • Store apples in the fridge. Keeping them cool will help them stay fresh for almost a month.
  • Keep apples in the crisper drawer of the fridge on the “fruit” setting.
  • If you refrigerate apples in a plastic bag, make sure there are holes in the bag to let air in and help keep excess moisture away from the fruit.
  • Store apples whole; only slice them when you are ready to enjoy them. If you want to keep apple slices from browning, soak them in a little lemon juice before packing them for lunch.
  • Avoid storing apples with foods with strong odors, such as onions.
  • Bruised apple? Don't throw it away. Use it for juicing or in your favorite apple recipes.
