Apples Facts

As autumn is now upon us the apples in the Orchard are now ready to be eaten. There are a few different varieties which are grown here which include: Claygate Pearman, Cox’s Orange Pippin, Joybells, American Mother and Lord Lambourne. Here are a few nutritional facts on apples: 

 

  • Apples are a good source of fibre.

  • Apples are low in fat.

  • Apples contain Vitamin C.

  • Apples contain Vitamin K.

  • Apples are low in calories.

  • Apples do not contain salt.

  • Apples contain a very small amount of iron.

  • Apples are a good preventative of heart disease.
