How to ripen apples

Ripening already picked apples

ApplesRipening apples for an extra burst of taste can be done in a variety of ways. Apples already picked can be placed inside a paper bag that is lightly closed. After placing it in a paper bag, store the apples at room temperature for best results. Room temperature, also known as ambient temperature is usually from 64°F (18°C) to 73°F (23°C). Remember to use a paper bag, as plastic bags will not be enough for the ripening process. The ripening process consists of the production of ethylene gas, which helps the apples ripen. Storing the apples inside a paper bag will allow the apples to continuously respire until ripen.
