An apple is a sweet, edible fruit
produced by an apple tree (Malus
domestica). Apple trees are cultivated worldwide and are
the most widely grown species in the genus
Malus. The tree originated
in Central Asia, where its wild
ancestor, Malus sieversii,
is still found today. Apples have been grown for thousands of years in Asia
and Europe and were brought to North
America by European
colonists. Apples have religious and mythological
significance in many cultures, including Norse, Greek and European Christian traditions.
Apple trees are large if grown from seed. Generally, apple cultivars
are propagated by grafting onto rootstocks,
which control the size of the resulting tree. There are more than 7,500
known cultivars of apples,
resulting in a range of desired characteristics. Different cultivars
are bred for various tastes and use, including cooking, eating raw and cider production. Trees and
fruit are prone to a number of fungal,
bacterial and pest problems, which can be controlled by a number of organic and non-organic
means. In 2010, the fruit's genome
was sequenced as part of
research on disease control and selective breeding in apple production.
Worldwide production of apples in 2017 was
83.1 million tonnes,
with China accounting for half of the total.
