Apples

DELICIOUS, NUTRITIOUS…APPLES


DID YOU KNOW?
• Apple trees take 4-5 years to produce their first fruit. A standard size apple tree starts
bearing fruit 8-10 years after it is planted. A dwarf tree starts bearing fruit in 3-5 years.
• Apples will ripen six to ten times faster at room temperature than if they were
refrigerated.
• Apples are full of fiber and can help you feel full on fewer calories – which can
ultimately help in weight management. Plus, fiber fights cholesterol and lowers
your heart disease risk.
• Thanks to their high levels of boron, apples can help improve your memory,
mental alertness, and electrical activity of the brain.
