Apple Tree Facts for Preschoolers & More

When I was researching some fun apple facts, it was funny how much I learned.  Here are some of the interesting things you might not know about apple trees:

  • 2500 types of apples are grown in the United States
  • The only apple that is native to the United States is the crabapple!
  • The study of apple growing is pomology which I find awesome since this apple craft is full of pom poms.
  • The average American consumes over 45 pounds of apples and apple products each year!  That is more than a bushel.
