Organic Liberty Apple

A fairly recent apple variety developed in the United States in the 1970s. These apples are sweet and tart, with a firm, crisp flesh.

Handling & Storage Tips
Refrigerated apples last much longer than those left at room temperature. Apples emit ethylene, a naturally occurring gas that speeds ripening. To prevent apples from speeding up the ripening process of other items in your produce drawer, store them in a plastic bag. Conversely, if you want to speed up the ripening of bananas (or any other ethylene sensitive produce) you can place an apple in a bag with the bananas. To maximize an apple"s flavor, let it come to room temperature before eating it.
