Rarely do we think of apples in terms of numbers, well at Daffy Farms we do, but that’s because we use a lot of apples! Throughout the world there are over 7,500 different varieties of apples and around 2,500 of them are grown in the United States alone. The only variety native to North America is the crabapple. Out of all of the different kinds of apples only 100 varieties are grown for commercial use. Apple trees grow and thrive in all 50 U.S. states, but only 36 house commercial apple growing orchards.
