Long Term Apple Storage?
Is it possible to store apples at home for months and months? I'm thinking about planting a Goldrush apple tree after having some this spring at my local farmers market, but I'm worried I won't be able to keep them in storage long enough. From what I've read, their flavor improves after 2 or 3 months in cold storage. I was eating some incredible tasting Goldrush apples last June....approximately 7 months after harvest!!!
Is it possible to get anywhere near that type of storage time with just a regular refrigerator? Or do I need super low temps and some type of gas to get them to keep that long?
