Tesco stock 24 varieties of British apples, but the most popular are those featured below. When choosing your fruit, go for an apple that’s firm, shiny and heavy for its size; if it feels light, it’s probably past its best. Likewise, if it’s soft, it will be overripe. Store apples in a cool, dark place or in the salad drawer of the fridge.
