The Apple is one of the most popular fruits known to man, it was the
apple that Eve used to tempt Adam in the Bible, the apple that fell of
Newton’s head and led to the magnificent discovery of gravity and Steve
Job’s apple (though not the fruit) that caused such a stir in the world
of technology. Known to be a fruit which is high on nutrition, consuming
an apple everyday works wonders for health, known to treat anemia,
dysentery, heart diseases, eye disorders and kidney stones. Who has not
heard the famous proverb An Apple a Day, Keeps the doctor away. In Greek
and Roman mythology apples have been used as symbols of love and beauty
and are known to be related to the rose family.
Apples in India are largely grown in the city of Shimla which has earned the city sobriquet of the “Apple town of India.” Shimla is as popular for its apples as it is for being the capital of state of Himachal Pradesh. You will find miles of land covered by beautiful apple orchards in Shimla.
