"An apple a day keeps the doctor away"
The apple is the pomaceous fruit of the apple tree, known as the species Malus domestica as part of the rose family (Rosaceae). Domestic apples are generally grown by grafting, although wild apples grow readily from seed. (Wikipedia)
There are more than 7,500 known cultivars that are bred for various tastes and uses.
- Apples have a rounded shape with a depression at the top where the stem is attached.
- Some are almost perfectly round, while others are more rounded at the top and narrower at the bottom.
- In addition, some have knobby lobes at the bottom of the fruit.
- Fruits are firm and the skin is shiny and smooth.
- The colour of the skin can be red, green, yellow, or a combination of those colours.
- The flesh is white or ivory.
Uses include consumption, cooking and cider production.
