Origin / Cultivation

Dating back to prehistoric times, the first wild apples appeared in the region of Kazakhstan (central Asia) and these original apples gave rise to all the apple varieties known today. This fruit tree belongs to the Rosaceae family and is now cultivated in Europe, Asia and North America. There are over 20,000 species. The Apple tree blossoms in spring and its lovely white or pink flowers produce a fruit, the Apple, known for its crunch and its sour or sweet taste.  "An Apple a day keeps the doctor away": the Apple is known for its flavour as well as for its therapeutic and cosmetic properties.
