Apples are one of the most healthiest fruits. They are rich in antioxidants, Dietary fiber, High in Vitamin C, Vitamin B as well as phytonutrients (polyphenolic compounds). They reduce risks of developing cancer, Diabetes, Hyperthermia, And heart disease. A study based on 9, 208 men and women who ate an apple a day over a 28 year period, Showed that they had the lowest risk of having a stroke. Floride State University also concluded that apple "miracle fruit". They said that people who ate an apple everyday had 23% less bad cholesterol.

Apples are also extremely available in the way that the skin is edible, So you can take it wherever you want and they are environmentally friendly because of that, Since the only waste produced is the core. They are also available throughout the whole year. Some may say that apples actually have a season but this is only for certain types of apples. Which brings me to my next point.

There is a variety of apples, So if someone isn't fond of red apples, But they like green apples, They still have an option to eat apples. With other fruits such as oranges, If someone doesn't like oranges, They just don't like oranges. You will find well know varieties like Granny Smith, Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, And Gala in the stores all year round. Over August, Transparent, Vista Bella, Paula Red and Gingergold. Now this is when things really begin to pick up. A good majority of the apples ripen in September. This month features some of the best and most popular. Honeycrisp and it"s offspring SweeTango hit store shelves right around Labor Day. This is also when you need to get your McIntosh apples. Now you might think winter would not be a time when a lot of varieties hit the market place, But that isn"t the case. There are a lot of apples making their debut in the winter months. Most of these were harvested in October and placed into cold storage for either two reasons: 1) Because they will taste better as they age, Without becoming too soft 2) To fill the void once the other popular apples are well past their prime. As you can see there is a variety of reasons why apples are the best fruit.

While it is true that apples are good fruits, It is not the sole fruit or the best fruit for your day. Other fruits, Like oranges, Bananas, Melons, Pineapples, Etc. , Have all of those AND MORE, Which include potassium, Vitamin C, Calcium, Natural sugar (not the kind in your cookies or soda) and more. Saying that one fruit is the single best fruit is like saying that a certain physician is the single best physician in her field. Sure, You may be able to argue it, But since they're all physicians at her job, They're most likely going to be equal when it comes to what they provide for their patients.

Yes oranges do have a higher amount of Vitamin C, But apples on the other hand have a higher overall nutritional value. Not only that but they are available in the market all year round, And have a peel which can be eaten, Making it environmentally friendly (since you don't need to put it in another container), And more facile to carry around.
