    Storage -sharp apples 15th Oct 19 at 12:49 PM
    Have just been given a large batch of perfect but rather sharp tasting apples. Variety unknown as they came from an old tree in the garden the owners inherited.

    Are they likely to sweeten over time if kept in storage? Any hints on how they might sweeten up, apart from adding sugar or honey when cooking them? Think they're meant to be an eating variety.

    Can't answer specifically on how long, but lots of apples are meant for storing somewhere cool, dry & airy.

    Like pears they mature overt time, sometimes this can be next year depending on variety, which is unknown in your case

    If you want to cook with them just go ahead and add sugar to taste

    See if there is an Apple Day taking place near where you live, then you can have it identified and find out its characteristics.
