Selection of apple varieties, with red delicious apple out in front. Isolated on white.
A large selection of apples increases store sales, but might overwhelm consumers… which means that instead of trying new varieties, shoppers continue to buy the “tried and true” varieties they have always bought. Because so many apple varieties are available, produce clerks can help consumers with purchasing decisions.
Apples vary not only in appearance, but also in taste, texture and how they are best used. This course provides information on how to handle and store apples properly, as well as how to answer consumer questions about different apple varieties.
This course has the following objectives:
•Identify the different types of apples.
•Identify the best uses for different types of apples.
•Identify different apple substitutions.
