Apple
Botanical Name: Malus spp.

Red and green apples on apple tree.

The apple tree is native to Europe and Asia and is now grown throughout the world in temperate climates. There are thousands varieties of apple fruits with different colours, sizes and taste.

Some are wild, others are cultivated.

Some are sweet, some are very juicy, some are highly aromatic and some are acid and astringent.

Apples contain cyanogenic glucosides in the seeds which can be toxic if eaten in large quantities.

Here in Denmark, apple trees grow wild throughout the country.

They grow in nutrient-rich soil in light woods, wood edges, windbreaks, shrubs and field boundaries.

Among other uses, apples are used in the making of apple cider vinegar, wine, schnapps and liqueurs.

Also used in the making of fruit brandies, such as the classic Calvados apple brandies from Normandy in France, and the popular Applejacks from the United States.
