Commercial apple storage is dependent on more than just temperature control - oxygen, carbon dioxide and humidity are also very carefully controlled. The optimum combination of temperature and gases is different for different types of apple. I think the oxygen level is significantly reduced and carbon dioxide is increased. It's akin to putting the apples in hibernation.

Or just going back to a more traditional way of farming?

Interesting that they have closed jersey cows a local farm that also has jersey cows has gone from strength to strength - it’s probably more we’ll known now for its ice cream.
