Eat a Red Apple Day

Eat A Red Apple Day is celebrated in America on December 1st. The date is dedicated to everyone who loves apples! When we talk about it, we always think about the red fruit – it is the sweetest and juiciest. Lovers of green apples, do not be offended, perhaps there will be a holiday and your preferences.


Apples have an ancient history! In America, fruits appeared in the 19th year: they were planted by Johnny Appleseed – a real resident of the United States, who later became a folklore hero. One of the legends says that a man sowed grains everywhere so that no one would starve. He was afraid to hurt any living creature, even a worm. In appearance, he was a very poor man, but he could afford much more!

In 1875, apples grew in Peru, Iowa. The farmer could not say where the tree came from, because he did not specifically plant anything. After ripening, he carefully picked the fruit and decided to visit the exhibition taking place in Missouri. This was his best decision – the participants could not see enough of the fruits and wanted to see them on their property. Their rich color drove me crazy! Today it is difficult to imagine life without a delicious fruit.
