Apples are one of the most common fruits, packed with various health benefits.

These assist in preventing gallstones, detoxifying the liver, boosting the immune system and neutralises irritable bowel syndrome.

With all of these benefits, the phrase “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”, should certainly hold a lot of truth.

Ruan De Villiers, store manager at Food Lover’s Market Longbeach, has given some tips on the best ways to store apples to prevent them from ripening too soon:

. Always handle apples carefully as they bruise easily.

. It is ideal to store apples in a refrigerator as they stay fresher for longer.

. It is recommended to store apples in a plastic bag when storing in the refrigerator as it gives off ethylene.

While not harmful, the natural gas does make other fresh, like lettuce in particular, turn brown sooner.
