Simple Secrets to Fruit Storage
Last year a friend who has a small orchard purchased a used 25 year old Sun Frost. The 10 c.f. refrigerator was originally designed for storing berries at temperatures near 32 F.
Last October he filled it with apples. A week ago he pulled out the last apple. After 8 months the apple was crisp and tasty. The pattern on the surface of the apple is commonly seen on Myra Fuji apples.
The keys to long term storage are temperatures near 32 F and high humidity. Sun Frosts do an excellent job of providing both these conditions.
