Apples are well-known, small-medium sized deciduous trees belonging to the Rose family that grow in temperate climates. The Rose family is a nourishing plant family that generously provides us with many popular fruits. Raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, plums, pears, peaches, cherries, loquats, and even almonds are all proud members of the Rosaceae family. As technology becomes more sophisticated, plant families are often reorganized based on the latest information available. Some believe that the reorganization of the Rosacea family in the early 1900s inspired the poem by Robert Frost titled “The Rose Family”: ‘The rose is a rose, And was always a rose. But now the theory goes That the apple’s a rose, And the pear is, and so’s The plum, I suppose. The dear only knows What will next prove a rose. You, of course, are a rose But were always a rose.’ The Malus or apple genus contains various species, and is native throughout the northern hemisphere as ‘crabapples’. The cultivated apple is thought to have been originally domesticated in Asia and spread via the Silk Road to the rest of Europe. DNA sequencing of archeological apple samples suggests that the cultivated apple genotype was being consumed throughout Germany, Switzerland, Poland, and The Netherlands by 100 C.E., in contrast to the crabapple genotypes of prior years.
