Deciduous trees are plants that shed fruit or leaves when they reach maturity. Half of all deciduous fruit trees used for fruit production are apple trees. The countries that produce most of these trees are China, the United States, Poland, Italy, and Turkey. Here are some tips about apples:
• Apples contain high levels of boron, which stimulates electrical activity of the brain and increases mental alertness.
• Most of the anti-oxidants in apples, including Quercetin, are found in the skin.
• A medium-sized apple contains 80 calories.
• Apple juice, apple flesh, and apple cider vinegar all have high malic acid content. This beneficial compound is helpful in treating conditions such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and gallstones
• Approximately 42 pounds of apples are found in a bushel. All those apples can make about 21 pies, 3 gallons of cider, and 20 quarts of applesauce.
• The reason why apple floats is, that it's less dense than water. A study says that 26% of its volume is nothing but air. When you place an apple on water, it displaces an amount of water that weighs the same as the whole apple.
