something to chew on
Apples certainly have been around for quite some time! Carbonized remains of apples from the Iron Age have been discovered in prehistoric lakes in Switzerland. There is also evidence to suggest that apples were eaten by people of the Stone Age as well.
The apple tree is believed to be one of the oldest cultivated trees in the world, however, its exact origin is not known. It is believed that apple trees were first planted and cultivated by the Romans, some people believe apples originated in South Western Asia. While on the other hand, some believe that apples originated in Kazakhstan in South Central Asia.
