7 Fun Facts About Apples

Apples are my favourite fruit!! They’re so crnchy and portable, and are great for a quick sugar fix. It’s almost rare to visit a home and not see at least one apple nowadays, and this makes me glad. You can eat them by themselves, put them in a salad, or cook them into a sauce or bake them into a pie.

Because I love them so much, I’m sharing fun facts about apples you may not have known before now.
