Apples!

 

Apples are some of the most popular and delicious fruits on the planet. There is nothing like biting into a bright, red, juicy apple to quench your thirst and satisfy your sweet tooth while boosting your health in a major way. They have been cultivated for thousands of years throughout Asia and Europe, and they make appearances in the cultural history of many ancient civilizations, including the Greeks, Romans, and Nordic tribes.

Apples are a rich source of various phytochemicals including flavonoids (e.g., catechins, flavanols, and quercetin) and other phenolic compounds (e.g., epicatechin and procyanidins) found in the skin, core, and pulp of the apple; they have unknown health value in humans.
