September Is National Apple Month
The month of September is finally here, and that means fall is around the corner.
What better month to celebrate fall’s favorite fruit, the apple, than September?
This month marks the start of school, colder weather and fall traditions; therefore it is the ideal month to really start enjoying apples. While the fruits of summer are always enjoyable nothing quite beats an apple. Apples can be used in pies, cobblers and other sweet treats. Not to mention they go great in salads and other main dishes, and everyone loves a candy or caramel apple on a stick. Additionally, the number of apple varieties is endless, from bitter to sweet and from firm to soft there is an apple variety for every need. So, say goodbye to summer fruits and hello to the apple, after all it is the staple fruit of fall.
