Apples

It’s apple picking season! So that means apples are our product du jour.

According to AgMRC, every state in the US grows apples, and 29 states raise apples commercially. Washington State produces about 70 percent of the apples in the United States. Other leading states include New York, Pennsylvania, California and Virginia.

Both delicious and crunchy, the apple is a popular and favorite choice for almost everyone. This wonderful fruit is nutrient packed with rich phyto-nutrients, which are indispensable for optimal health. The antioxidants in apple have several health promoting and disease prevention properties, and thereby, truly justifying the adage, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away.”
