Apple trees are cultivated worldwide and are the most widely grown species in the genus Malus. Apples have been grown for thousands of years in Asia and Europe and were brought to North America by European colonists.

The Apple tree as we know it today was most likely the result of a wild hybridization from species in central Asia. Evidence of the earliest edible Apple was found in the Jordan Valley and dates back to 6,500 B.C. Apple trees thrive in loamy or heavy clay soils with adequate drainage and are most fruitful when planted full sun.

Apple Blossoms are available in the early spring. Visually as a garnish, Apple Blossoms have a delicate and elegant appearance. Their sweet flavor also complements fruits like Lemon, Pear, Apricot and Quince, or other edible aromatic flowers such as Rose, Jasmine, and Elderflower.

Flowers are generally very high in antioxidants and important in ridding the body of free radicals. A tea of dried Apple Blossoms may be consumed as a stress reliever, digestion aid or to clear complexion.
