How to Choose a Ripe Apple

Choosing a ripe apple is easy when you know what to look for. First, always check for bruising or discoloration on the fruit. If any are present, that fruit is likely over ripe or it was injured in the picking and moving process. Second, make sure your apple is firm to the touch. If the fruit is too soft, it’s likely old. Lastly, give your apple a whiff! Your fruit should have a pleasant aroma. If it smells rotton or in no way appetizing, choose another. There are a variety of ways to utilize apples. You can simply eat them (make sure to discard of the seeds), bake with them, put the apples in a smoothie and so much more.

In 1942, Roy Webster began selling apples and pears from his orchards located in Hood River, Oregon. The area was perfect for growing fruit thanks to the volcanically enriched soil and glacial water from the nearby Mt. Hood. The fruit was exceptional. This orchard and fruit growing wisdom was passed down from father to son. In 1999, The Fruit Company was founded by Roy's grandsons, Scott & Addison Webster. Today, Scott runs the business as President and CEO. The Fruit Company packs and ships beautiful fruit gifts around the nation.
