Question: 

What are the best storage conditions for apples?

Answer: 

The temperature and relative humidity during storage are critical for maximum storage life.  Optimum storage conditions for apples are a temperature near 30 to 32 degrees Fahrenheit and a relative humidity between 90 and 95 percent.  When provided with optimum storage conditions, ‘Jonathan’ and ‘Red Delicious’ apples can be stored up to 3 to 6 months.  Apples stored at a temperature of 50F will spoil two to three times faster than those stored at 32 degrees Fahrenheit.  Apples will shrivel during storage if the relative humidity is low.
