6 Fun Facts About Apples for Kids
Before we get started with our apple craft template ideas, let’s learn a little bit about apples.
Did you know apples make up half of the world’s fruit tree production?
The countries that produce most of these apple trees are China, the United States, Poland, Italy, and Turkey.
In the United States alone over 2500 variations of apples.
Red Delicious, Fuji, Golden Delicious, Rome, Granny Smith, and Gala are a few of the most popular varieties grown in the U.S.
Apple juice, apple flesh, and apple cider vinegar are all high in malic acid content.
Malic acid is a chemical found in certain fruits (such as apples) and wines.
It is most commonly used for dry mouth, sometimes medicine, skin conditions, treating gallstones, and others.
Apples are also high in fiber. One apple contains almost twice the amount of fiber as one serving of a fiber supplement.
So why bother with supplements if you can eat a delicious apple?
So apples are not only tasty but healthy.
Even some studies have shown that consuming apples on a regular basis may reduce your risk of cancer besides other benefits.
Apple trees mature very slowly. A full-sized apple tree can reach its full potential in 4-10 years depending on factors such as sunlight exposure, fertilizer, etc.
The last and most shocking fact about apples is that apple pie is not American but from England.
Yes, the apple pie is originally from England!
