An interesting fact about apples is that they belong to the rose family and are one of the most widely grown fruits in the world. There are over 7,500 different varieties of apples and millions of tonnes of apples are produced every year. Apples are also a good source of fibre and vitamin C and can help reduce the risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
Did you know … A study found that regular consumption of apples can reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia by up to 50%.
Apples are best stored in a cool place. Temperatures of 2-4°C are ideal. It is also important to store it separately from other types of fruit, as citrus fruits, for example, accelerate ripening.
