Apples are an easy way to get a serving of fruit.
- Minnesota-grown apples come in many varieties with a range of flavors — from the sweet and “explosively crisp” Honeycrisp apples to the new sweet and tart Zestar!
- Apples are convenient — an original “fast food” which can be eaten fresh, sliced, dipped, dried, or processed as sauce and juice.
- Apples are nutritious — they contain no fat, sodium, cholesterol, or artificial colors or flavors, and are a good source of fiber, and polyphenols (anti-oxidants.) A medium-sized apple (tennis ball size) has only 80 calories.
