Our apples now have no added wax!

In February 2017, Red Rich Fruits stopped applying wax to our fresh apples. Find out more about apple waxing and why we’ve made the move away from it, here.

Ripeness

Apples contain ethylene which means they continue to ripen once picked. They should be firm to touch with unbruised flesh and skin and an appealing apple aroma. If the skin has started to wrinkle, or the flesh has begun to feel spongy, it’s past its prime.

Storage

Apples are best stored in the crisper drawer of the refrigerator.
