How do you like them apples?

Fruity facts

In the 6th Century BC, the Romans cultivated some 37 varieties of apples. Today, you can find around 7,500 different kinds. 

And right here at home?

Just about one dozen varieties:

to bite into: firm, juicy and crunchy i.e.: McIntosh, Red Delicious, Golden Russet

oven lovers: sweet, and holding their form i.e.: Gala, Idared

for pies: less juicy, slightly sharp i.e.: Cortland, Granny Smith and Fuji


 

apple sauce specialists: keeping their appetizing colour i.e.: Melba, Yellow Delicious

and let ’s not forget those all-purpose superstars that we bite into and bake to our heart’s content! i.e.: Empire, Spartan and Rome Beauty

Apples contain potassium, vitamin C and fibre. Most of the nutrition is found in their skin, so it’s always better to eat them unpeeled!
