All about apples
This popular fruit cultivated worldwide originally comes from Central Asia. Today, it is a staple in many meals, from healthy breakfasts to desserts. It is available in more than 8,000 varieties and are one of the most widely grown fruits in the world. It is a deciduous fruit, but once apples are ready for picking, new buds have already started to form.
