Recognizing quality at first sight
The first impression counts. This is also true for the apple. Apples should be firm and smooth with a peel that shows no indentations or cracks. This is a sign of freshness and good storage. If the apple is slightly wrinkled, it has probably been stored incorrectly or for too long. You can recognize high-quality apples by the stalk cavity, the so-called calyx basin, which gives you information about the apple’s ripeness. If the calyx basin is deep and wide, the apple has been harvested ripe. Furthermore, we invite you to sniff the apple because the released scent is normally quite similar to the aroma of the flesh.
