Why store apples in old chest of drawers, when these gorgeous racks can grace your harvest store?
Apple racks are an easy way to keep and store apples through the Autumn. The racks can also be used to store other fruit such as pears, plums etc.
The 5 drawer rack is a great size for those with a couple of apples trees and for those with a larger orchard, the 10 drawer rack gives lots of extra storage space.
The shelves on the apple racks are slatted to allow the air to circulate round the fruit.
The apple racks are best kept in well ventilated places such as a shed, garage or garden outhouse. If the conditions are cool and dark the fruit will store for much longer. Always store unspoilt fruit - remember, one bad apple…
The pine is FSC certified and the racks are delivered fully assembled.
Beautifully handmade in oiled oak, the boot rack can left outside under shelter if inside space is a problem. Made in England.
