Apples Anyone???

I like apples, whenever I go home from work, i always buy apple from a nearby fruit stand. But did you know that.

  • There are 7,500 varieties of apples grown throughout the world.
  • The largest apple ever picked weighed 3 pounds.
  • Apples ripen six to ten times faster at room temperature than if they were refrigerated.
  • It takes energy from 50 leaves to produce 1 apple.
  • One apple provides as much as one-fifth of the recommended daily intake fiber.
  • Apple juice was one of the earliest prescribe antidepressant.
  • Apples may help you loose weight. A Brazilian study showed that 300 overweight women who ate 3 apples per day lost more weight than a similar group who didn't add fruit to their diet. Researchers believe that adding fruit to the diet of the overweight women changed their metabolic profiles.
  • Apple bruise easier than eggs break.
