I love apples! Nothing tastes better with a slice of chedder cheese than a sliced up apple! Yum! My favorite kind of apple is Gala. Crisp and sweet.
From the Old Farmer's Almanac:
When did people begin growing apple trees as a cash crop?
People have grown apple trees for cultivation for many centuries, improving the stock over time through seed selection and grafting for propagation. The kinds of apples we have today are the combined results of natural cross-pollination among several species. Control of diseases and pests in apple crops is a costly undertaking, requiring increasingly bigger orchards where large growers can achieve cost efficiency.
