The history of the “noble” apple traces the journey of humankind across the world and into the mythical heavens above. Domesticated in the general region between the Black and Caspian seas today known as Kazakhstan, apples have been part of the human diet as far back as 6500 B.C. The apple appears throughout Greek, Roman, Norse and Celtic mythologies tied to gods and goddesses, including Pomona, the Roman goddess who watched over people, dwellings, fruiting trees, and gardens. In literature and art throughout the ages, it has symbolized temptation, immortality and reincarnation, opulence and wealth, dissension and discord, and even the “Forbidden Fruit.”
Delicious, versatile, and abundantly healthful, the apple is a member of the rose family along with pears and plums, with more than 7500 cultivars across the world today. The fruit takes on an array of colors, including lime green, golden yellow, burgundy, chocolate brown; and ranges in size from that of a pea to that of a grapefruit.
