Apples

Everybody knows the wonderfulness of the apple. It’s crispy, beautiful, perfect in pies and the premiere fall fruit. Beyond stating more of the obvious, here are a few

fun facts:

 

  1. Palmology is the science of apple growing. Wait! That’s POMOLOGY, which deals with fruits and nuts, not hands. Palmology is also known as palmistry or chiromancy . . .oh, we’re getting off subject.
  2. An apple has an average of 10 seeds. That’s the same number of fingers on two hands. Oh! Going back to the palms, aren’t we? Focus.
  3. Eating an apple helps increase mental awareness, so needed to concentrate on this essay. The fruit has bunches of boron (vitamin B) and is produced entirely by cosmic ray spallation .
  4. Enjoying big words? Malusdomesticaphobia is the fear of apples.
  5. Feeling stuck in neutral? You can enjoy two servings of Metamucil or one fiber-filled apple.
  6. An apple a day keeps the doctor away. An onion a day keeps everyone

away. Probably.

  1. If you ate one apple a day, it would take you over 7 years to eat every variety known to man. There are over 2500.
  2. To actually EAT most of the apple, start from the bottom and work your way up. Biting around the core actually wastes 30% of the fruit.
  3. Apples can be as little as cherries or as large as grapefruits. The largest apple ever picked weighed 3 pounds, about the size of a teacup poodle.
  4. While we’re on percentages, 25% of an apple’s weight is air. That’s why they are perfect for bobbing.
  5. One word: Mac. There are many theories about why the apple logo was chosen. I like to think it symbolizes the knowledge gained through having access to the worldwide web. Without it, this silly apple essay would not have come to fruition! (Get it? Fruit – ition.)
