In the early era of the American colonies, barrels of apple seeds were brought across the Atlantic Ocean for the colonists to begin and continue growing numerous orchards of apple trees. At first, apples were primarily used to make cider, but soon after, apple pies began becoming popular for being the evening dessert for children. And so came about one of the great cultural icons of Americanism, which, along with baseball, hot dogs and Chevrolet, still remains that great symbol.
As we all know, the season directly behind the hot, sunny summer season is the cool, windy fall season. But what many people may not know is, like each season, the season of fall has a specific fruit best known for that time, and that fruit is the apple. Apples are the main fruit of the season fall because this is when they are at their peak; the warm weather has the best climate-storage for the apples, and the apples are fully-seasoned in this time period.
