Apple (Pyrus malus) is the most popular and widely cultivated temperate-zone fruit tree. It belongs to the rose family of plants, Rosaceae, and is thought to have originated in Western Asia and Asia Minor, where carbonised apples dating from 6500 B.C. have been found.
Apples have hundreds of culinary uses from jellies to juice. In medicine, their antimicrobial and other therapeutic qualities are highly valued, and the fruits can be beneficial for teeth and gums, when eaten raw. Studies indicate that the old saying 'an apple a day keeps the doctor away' may actually be true. It has been found that eating apples daily can help to reduce skin diseases, arthritis and various respiratory problems.
Apple water is made in-house by mixing apple juice with water.
