5 Cool Things About Apples

3026556399_dd49d85833_mOctober is National Apple Month. Apple Pie lovers rejoice! There’s bound to be a delicious pie baking up in an oven near you! I thought today’s post would be a fun time to learn some cool facts about this delicious fruit. So here goes:

More than 2,500 varieties of apples are grown in the United States, but only the crabapple is native to North America.

Apples are a member of the rose family (along with pears, peaches, plums and cherries).

Thanks to their high levels of boron, apples can help improve your memory, mental alertness, and electrical activity of the brain.

Apple varieties range in size from a pea to the size of a small pumpkin.

It takes about 36 apples to create one gallon of apple cider.

One of the delights of the upcoming Fall Season is apple picking. Next time you are in the Greenville South Carolina area, be sure and pay a visit to Nivens Farms. Nivens Farms is located in the heart of South Carolina’s Upstate in Moore, SC.  And while you’re in the Palmetto State, be sure and check out the excellent welder training and certification program at Arc Labs Welding Schools. With 4 locations throughout the state, there is sure to be a program accessible to you.
