Storage for Apples

Boxed apples need to be kept in a cool, dark spot where they won't freeze. Freezing ruptures all of an apple's cells, turning it into one large bruise overnight. The usual solution is to store apples in a root cellar. But root cellars often have potatoes in them, and experts say that apples and potatoes should never be stored in the same room. This may seem incongruous, but there is a reason. As they age, potatoes release an otherwise harmless gas that makes apples spoil faster. If you can keep the gas away from your apples, they will keep just fine. Just don't store them right next to potatoes.

You can keep wrapped apples in a cardboard box. It need not be airtight, just tight enough to impede air circulation. They can be kept in an unheated basement, a pantry, an enclosed porch, an unheated attic, even in a root cellar, potatoes and all.
