Apple Trivia

Source NY Apple Growers

Pilgrims planted the first U.S. apple trees in the Massachusetts Bay Colony.

A standard-size apple tree starts bearing fruit 8-10 years after it is planted. A dwarf tree starts bearing in 3-5 years.

Apple trees can be grown farther north than other fruit trees because they bloom late in spring, minimizing the chance of frost damage.

Apples are the second most-valuable fruit grown in the United States; oranges are the first. (Source: USDA Economic Research Service)

Newton Pippin apples were the first apples exported from America in 1768, some were sent to Benjamin Franklin in London.
