No need to introduce apple- the most popular, economic and significant fruit worldwide. But to talk a little about its origin and history is remarkable.
The apple with scientific name of Malus domestica is originated from central Asia (mountains of Kazakhstan) where still its wild ancestor, Malus sieversii, is seen.
As mentioned in ScienceDaily “Depictions of large red fruits in Classical art demonstrate that domesticated apples were present in southern Europe over two millennia ago, and ancient seeds from archaeological sites attest to the fact that people have been collecting wild apples across Europe and West Asia for more than ten thousand years.”
Apple grows in temperate environments. It has around 7,500 varieties! All of them of course are not seen in grocery stores! But they exist! Around 2,500 of them are cultivated in USA. Gala, Fuji, pink lady, Golden delicious, granny smith, red delicious, and honey crisp are some of the most famous types of apples.
