Even though we’ve survived Halloween and crossed the threshold into November, there is so much goodness around apples that we’re going to talk about them a little longer while they are still #INseason. How about some fun apple facts?
We didn’t know this one: the science of apple growing is called pomology!
There are 2500 varieties of apples in the US, and 7500 varieties across the globe. How many of them can you name?
And how about this health tip: the peel contains two-thirds of the fiber in an apple and has loads of antioxidants. So maybe the old saying about keeping the doctor away is really true!
