There are at least 7,500 different apples to be found around the world and each one is unique. Wonder what makes such a diverse population? Apples are like parents, and every seed a child. We might share some characteristics with our moms and dads, but certainly not all of them!
Apples hold a special place in world culture. We give them to teachers as a sign of respect, we tell our loved ones they're the apple of our eyes, and we still hold to the age-old medical advice: an apple a day keeps the doctor away. Ever wonder what makes apples so special?
