Apple Coloring Pages
What's your favorite fruit? Is it orange? Or is it apple? I like oranges but apples are by far my favorite fruit. I like them when they're still a bit hard to bite, not when they're already soft. They just taste sweeter that way. By the way, do you know that most of the nutrients apples have are contained on their skin? The amount of antioxidants on apple skin is ten times greater than on its meat. That's why I never peel it when I want to eat it. My sister does peel it. I told her that it's a waste not to eat the skin but she never listens to me.

- Apples are a member of the rose family. Apple varieties range in size from a little larger than a cherry to as large as a grapefruit. The largest apple ever picked weighed 3 pounds. More than 2,500 varieties of apples are grown in the United States, but only the crabapple is native to North America.
- Apple seeds contain a cyanide compound. Our body can handle small doses of this naturally occurring poison so you'd have to eat a huge number of seeds for it to have an effect, and even then the seeds are covered in a protective coating which keeps the cyanide compound safe inside.
