From the Test Kitchen

Even though apples are one of the most widely available and loved fruits in the United States, few people know their rich history. First cultivated in eastern Turkey and introduced to North America in the 1600s, apples are now grown in nearly every state. Washington, however, grows the most, providing over half of the apples in the U.S. each year.
