An apple is an edible fruit produced by an apple tree. Apple trees are cultivated worldwide and are the most widely grown species in the genus Malus. The tree originated in Central Asia, where its wild ancestor, Malus sieversii, is still found today.
The popular fruit contains good amounts of manganese, copper, and the vitamins A, E, B1, B2, and B6. Apples are also a rich source of polyphenols that contribute to skin, heart, gut and brain health.
