What are the best storage conditions for apples?
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 50ï…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.
