An apple is a sweet, edible fruit produced by an apple tree . Apple trees are cultivated worldwide and are the most widely grown species in the genus Malus.
Apples contain fiber, vitamin C, antioxidants, and potassium. A medium sized apple provides the following: 13–20% of a person’s daily fiber needs. 9–11% of a person’s daily vitamin C needs.
The ideal storage temperature is 30 to 35 degrees F. with 90 to 95 percent relative humidity. If you don’t have a lot of apples, the refrigerator is a good option. Place them in the crisper drawer in a plastic bag with holes in it or cover the apples with a damp paper towel.
