Come take a look!
Apples are a member of the rose family of plants, along with pears, peaches, plums and cherries.
The science of apple growing is called pomology.
Most apples are still picked by hand.
The world’s largest apple peel was created by Kathy Wafler Madison on October 16, 1976, in Rochester, N.Y. It was 172 feet 4 inches long. (She was 16 years old at the time, and grew up to be a sales manager for an apple tree nursery.) (Source: Guinness World Records)
It takes about 36 apples to create one gallon of apple cider.
25 percent of an apple’s volume is air; that’s why they float.
