Photographer's Note

Apples and green leaves.

A view of apples and green leaves in late August in a friend's yard.
The apple (lat. Malus) is a genus of woody plants from the Rosaceae family as well as the name for their pomum fruit. There are between 25 and 50 species in this genus and over 7500 cultivars of home-grown apples.
The domestic apple is a deciduous tree up to 12 m high, with a dense canopy. The leaves are oppositely arranged, oval with a pronounced tip and serrated edge. The flowers are white, with 5 corolla and 5 calyx petals. The fruit ripens in late summer and autumn.
The native apple (Malus domestica) is probably a hybrid of casdadasdas, and originated in central parts of Asia. There are archeological specimens of apples from Anatolia that are some 85,000 years old. The first data on apple cultivation speak of cultivation in Anatolia and northern Mesopotamia in the second millennium BC. Until 500 BC.
With the rise of the Roman Empire, fruit growing also developed, and the domestic apple spread to Western and Northern Europe. With the expansion of its range, the domestic apple came into contact with wild species of the genus Malus and often enriched its genotype with hybrids.
Since the 13th century, apples have become a highly cultivated species throughout Europe. During the 16th and 17th centuries, European colonists brought apples to the Americas, in the middle of the 17th century they brought them to South Africa, and at the end of the 18th century, apple cultivation began in Australia and Tasmania. Thus the home-grown apple can thank the progress of civilization for the expansion of the range.
