Apple Tips & Trivia
The Granny Smith apple gets its name from its founder, Mrs. Mary Ann (Granny) Smith.

Apples are the second most important of all fruits sold in the supermarket, ranking next to bananas.
The history of apple consumption dates from Stone Age cultivation in areas we now know as Austria and Switzerland.
In ancient Greece, tossing an apple to a girl was a traditional proposal of marriage; catching it was acceptance.
