Benefits of Apples
How to Buy and Store
When you buy apples, make sure they are firm. Also, dont buy apples that have wrinkles, since those apples have lost most of their health benefits and nutritional value. Apples that are overripe or are beginning to go rotten begin to metabolize their vast wealth of nutritional resources; but unfortunately, the released compound is ethylene gas. This ethylene gas can stimulate the rapid ripening and rotting of any other apples that are near it, so be sure not to keep apples for too long, and if you do, remove any unusually soft or bruised apples from the rest of the bag.
