Today on January 6, 2023 is Apple day! 

I know what you are thinking. Why is apple day so important? Well, here’s why! We celebrate Apple Tree Day on January 6 to honor the great tradition of growing and cultivating apples across North America. Introduced to the region by colonists in the 17th century, apple farming has been leading the fruit production industry in the U.S. for a century. From cider to pies, the apple is a greatly versatile fruit with tremendous health benefits and a mouthwatering taste.
