Apples are a fruit that can grow all around the world. In America alone there are over 2,500 different types of apples grown. At Halloween or Autumn celebrations, many people place apples in buckets of water and go “bobbing for apples” by trying to grab them with their teeth. They can do this because apples are 25% air so they float on top of the water. Apples are so widely eaten, they’ve even been to space! Tubes of apple sauce go on most space flights to let the astronauts continue to eat fruit and vegetables.
