Apples are a fruit of the pomaceous variety. Widely grown throughout the world, the apple is probably the first fruit that was cultivated by humans. We have been harvesting the apple for thousands of years and the apple has played such an important part in our diets that it is even part of our history and mythology.
Every single person on the planet must know of the story of Adam and Eve and the infamous Apple. Strange how an apple could cause us to feel shame and embarrassment. Thankfully that isn`t held against the fruit and it is one of the most eaten fruits on the planet.
Apples grow on trees, of which there are thousands of varieties. The trees have been native from Europe to Asia for long before humans arrived. It wasn`t until colonists went over to America that the apple tree start growing there. America is now the second largest grower of apples with 7.5% of the market behind China with 35% of the worlds supply.
