Some Apple History
The apple emerged as a celebrated fruit from the beginning of time. In the Bible, Adam and Eve were tempted to eat fruit that is generally believed to be the apple. Greek and Roman mythology refers to apples as symbols of love and beauty. As early as 300 BC, ancient Greeks were growing several varieties of apples, and the ancient Romans also grew and loved the fruit. When the Romans conquered England about the first century BC, they brought apple cultivation with them. William Tell gained fame by shooting an apple off his son’s head at the order of invaders of Switzerland.
