Did you know an apple is 25% air? That's why they float.

The apple originated in an area between the Caspian and Black Sea and is in the rose family.

Charred apples were found in prehistoric cave dwellings in Switzerland. That was before the marshmallow was invented.

The Pilgrims brought the apple to the New World and planted the first apple orchard. In colonial times they were called winter banana or melt-in-the-mouth.

In 1730 the first apple nursery was opened in Flushing, New York.

Americas oldest living apple tree was planted in 1647 by Peter Stuyvesant in his Manhatten orchard and was still bearing fruit when a train derailed and ran it over in 1866. Doohh!!
