Poland - the origin of european apples
Poland is the first producer of apples in Europe, with an annual production of 2.5 million tons. Apples stand for more than 80% of the fruit production in Poland. Apples have already been highly appreciated for their rich taste and good influence on health in Ancient Greece and Rome. In the archaeological site of Biskupin, Poland, the remnants of apple trees dating back to 1600 B.C. were found. Today, Polish apples are widely known for their nutrition values and health-boosting effects.
