More than 2,500 varieties of apples are grown in the United States, but only the crabapple is native to North America. Apples contain no fat, sodium or cholesterol and are a good source of fiber. Believe it or not, apples are a member of the rose family and range in size from a little larger than a cherry to as large as a grapefruit. The largest apple ever picked weighed 3 pounds. This month you can enjoy our favorite apple gourmet products with September's 'Apple Pickins.'
