In the 1860s the Welsh proverb “Eat an apple on going to bed, and you’ll keep the doctor from earning his bread’’ was developed. These days we know it as “An apple a day keeps the doctor away’’. Its creation was from folk-wisdom that fruit and vegetable consumption had identifiable health benefits. Anglo-Saxons and Ancient Romans also knew their health benefits, the Apple was also used in Ayurvedic medicine in southern Asia over 1500 years ago.
It is believed that eating an apple every day reduces the risk of having a stroke and lowers bad cholesterol. Apples are high in fibre and Vitamin C and low in sodium (salt) and calories.
There are a few different varieties of apples available on our Fruit Salad Trees, that not only look fantastic when they are growing, but they taste better than anything you will purchase in a store. Best of all you know you have grown them yourself. Take a look at our All Climate apples; they are low chill so only require around 300 hours of chill time and are therefore suited to most climates.

Your Fruit Salad Tree is beginning to bear its first fruit - it's a momentous occasion! You'll be tempted to sit back and let your tree continue to develop its array of different fruit, however, it's best to let the tree use its energy to grow sturdy framework and the first fruit can pull down the young branches.
