Apple Fun Facts:
Apples have five seed pockets or carpels. Each pocket contains seeds. The number of seeds per carpel is determined by the vigor and health of the plant. Different varieties of apples will have different number of seeds.
Planting an apple seed from a particular apple will not produce a tree of that same variety. The seed is a cross of the tree the fruit was grown on and the variety that was the cross pollinator.
Apples ripen six to ten times faster at room temperature than if they were refrigerated. For optimal storage, apples should be kept at 35-40 degrees with relative humidity of 80-90%.
Apples are a member of the rose family.
A bushel of apples weights about approximately 42 pounds.
It takes energy from 50 leaves to produce one apple.
Fresh apples float because 25% of their volume is air.
