‘Granny Smith’ apples come from Australia in 1868, where Maria Ann “Granny” Smith found a seedling growing near her property which bore light green apples. Apple growers began growing them for mass-market in the late 1960s, and since then it has become a popular variety worldwide.
There are 7,500 varieties of apples. Pink Pearl is known to taste like raspberry and smell like grapefruit.
If you plant an apple seed, the resulting tree will not produce the same kinds of apples. In fact, they will taste significantly different and may be unsuitable for human consumption.
Some mutated apples are half red, half green.
Apples are more powerful than caffeine at helping to stay awake.
