While apples stay fresher in the fridge, there is a way to store them the right way.

Apples can prematurely ripen

As apples ripen, they emit ethylene, which eventually turns them soft and makes them lose their flavor.

The ethylene released into the air can also speed up the ripening process of other products in your fridge. You should never store apples near avocados, lemons, grapes, onions, or other veggies sensitive to this gas.

Ethylene sometimes is not that bad

If you need to speed up the ripening process of your fruits and veggies, you can actually store unripe veggies or vegetables in a paper bag with an apple to make them ripen faster. 

Other fruits that produce ethylene

Apricots, pears, melon, kiwi, mango plums, bananas, and peaches also produce ethylene and should also be stored way from ethylene-sensitive fruits and veggies. 

You should aim at storing these fruits separately so they don't interfere with their ripening process.
