WA Grown Food Kit For Apples

Washington State is definitely known for its apples. More than half of all apples grown in the United States for fresh eating come from orchards in Washington, and are sold in all 50 states and more than 40 countries. An average yearly apple harvest is about 10 billion apples each year, which is enough to circle the Earth 20 times. Apples are delicious and super convenient. They can be eaten fresh, sliced, dipped, dried, or turned into sauce and juice. For more fun facts and nutrition information, check out the Nutrition Facts page, with information gathered from fruitsandveggiesmatter.gov and www.bestapples.com.
