Does anyone know how long dried apples and other fruit from bulk food stores lasts in warm weather? I'd like to take some on a three-week trip in July. Thanks.

In a well sealed package easily a year or more.

I dehydrate all sorts of fruit (apples, pears, strawberries, mangoes, kiwi, clementines, blueberries) and I just pull out bags before the trip. I ate some pears during my trip last week that I dehydrated about 1.5 years ago. They were still very tasty with zero spoilage. I find that just dehydrating fruit when it's in season and cheap in the market that I'm ready for trips whenever they come up.

Amen to that. I actually do my drying according to what is in season which may be well in advance of any trip that I might plan. I just finished doing a whole bunch of asperagus and about 20 pounds of cherries off my neighbour's tree. And as you say, Pk, when it comes time for a trip I just go through my stores and build my meals around that. Getting a dehydrator completely solved trip meal planning. Anything is possible once you get rid of the water. And it's true, I'm eating apples and apricots that I did up more than 2 years ago and they're just as yummy as they was when I first dried them.
