picking before ripe
Mama bear and two cubs were spotted in the 'hood. I thought it prudent to pick about a bushel of apples before they were ripe. The came off the tree with just a touch, but they're still pretty tasteless and starchy -
My idea is to hang them outside in a protected area in old onion bags so that the temperature will mimic what is normally happening, lows in the mid-30's, highs in the low 70's,. and hope they continue to ripen. We have a light frost forecast for later this week, and I'll leave them out for that as well.
Any ideas on how to ripen them up?
