  • More widely grown than any other tree fruit, the apple originally grew wild in Europe and western Asia.
  • Apples were cultivated and prized in ancient Rome, and brought to England by the conquering legions. The immigrant apple came to America with the early English settlers. Apples are now widely cultivated in all temperate regions. 
  • The apple tree is a member of the rose family. Wild apple trees are called crab apples.
