Applelishous Facts

  • Apples are high in fiber, Vitamin A and niacin.
  • Apples contain iron and other trace minerals and are a fair source of Vitamin C
  • Apples are ranked No. 1 in antioxidant activity, compared with other fruits.
  • When you slice an apple, the cut cells of the apple are exposed to oxygen in the air, enzyems called polyphenol oxidase react to this injury and create the browning compounds. This is why apples turn brown when cut!
  • To prevent browning, dip the apple slices in a bowl of water mixed with lemon juice (2 quarts water / ½ cup lemon juice)

How to Pick An Apple

Picking an apple form a tree is easy! Roll the apple up and off the branch and give a little twist. Don’t pull straight from the tree! If two apples are joined together at the top, both will come away at the same time. Don’t shake the trees or branches. If the apple you are trying to pick drops, or others on the tree, go ahead and pick them up! They are perfectly fine! But do wash them before you eat them. Once picked – don’t throw apples into the baskets, place them gently. Don’t wash your apples until you are ready to use them, to prevent spoilage. Keeping apples cool after picking increases their shelf life
