Key Releases

On Zapple:

Biography

Apple was a label started by The Beatles to release both their records and solo records, but those of other acts they liked and wanted to use their status to help out. They were very open with their demo-submission policy, which is one of the things that contributed to the downfall of the label (aside from over-extending, trying to get into other media and releasing objects), not to mention the breakup of The Beatles. Apple still exists, but primarily as a releasing arm for the Beatles albums

Zapple was an imprint on Apple to release more experimental records. The idea was for "disposable" records -- albums you'd hear once, then throw out; a record equivalent of what the paperback book was thought of. Unfortunately, due to high import costs, Zapple records ended up being too expensive to throw out, which contributed to resentment sometimes felt by buyers, and the imprint folded after putting out two albums.

At a reception at the Federation Council meeting hall in San Francisco, the Klingon Kelvis used an apple, thrown at a high velocity, to render Dav unconscious. (TOS comic: The Trial of James T. Kirk)

In order to appear inconspicuous among Human Starfleet cadets, Data learned to order a chicken sandwich, apple and glass of milk when eating in company. Tasha Yar referred to the meal as "misfit camouflage". (TNG novel: Survivors)

Apple is a doll in The Christmas Toy. She was Jamie's Christmas Toy two years before the events of the special, and is sometimes jealous that Rugby Tiger replaced her as the Christmas Toy last year. Still, she's mature enough to help save Rugby when he ventures out of the playroom and is almost discovered by the children.

On the subsequent spin-off series, The Secret Life of Toys, Apple was replaced by Raisin.

The Apple is the pomaceous fruit of the apple tree, species Malus domestica in the rose family Rosaceae. It is one of the most widely cultivated tree fruits. The tree is small and deciduous, reaching 5–12 m tall, with a broad, often densely twiggy crown. The leaves are alternately arranged simple ovals 5–12 cm long and 3–6 cm broad on a 2–5 cm petiole with an acute tip, serrated margin and a slightly downy underside. Flowers are produced in spring simultaneous with the budding of the leaves. The flowers are white with a pink tinge that gradually fades, five petaled, 2.5–3.5 cm in diameter. The fruit matures in autumn, and is typically 5–9 cm diameter. The centre of the fruit contains five carpels arranged in a five-point star, each carpel containing one to three seeds.

The tree originated from Asia, where its wild ancestor is still found today. There are more than 7,500 known cultivars of apples resulting in range of desired characteristics. It should be noted however, that cultivars vary in their yield and the ultimate size of the tree, even when grown on the same rootstock.

Though originating on Earth, habitable planets colonised by the UNSC have vast apple orchards, especially Harvest before its destruction.[1]

The native home of the apple is not definitely known, but the tree originated probably in the area between the Caspian and the Black seas. Charred remains of apples have been found in the prehistoric lake dwellings of Switzerland. Evidence shows that man has been enjoying apples for at least 750,000 years. Apples were a favorite fruit of the ancient Greeks and Romans. Today, Americans eat about 120 apples apiece each year. At least 50% of the domestic crop is used in items we use every day such as, applesauce, juice, jellies, and other popular desserts. (Wellness Encyclopedia of Food and Nutrition, 1992).

Apples are a fruit of the apple tree. It is one of the most cultivated and recognized tree fruits. Different cultivars of apples have different tastes. The green apple or Granny Smith apple is one such cultivar of rich quality and popularity.

They can be canned, juiced and optionally fermented to produce apple juice, cider and vinegar. Apples are an important ingredient in many desserts such as apple pie, crumble, crisp and apple cake. As well as being baked and stewed, apples can be eaten raw as a healthy supplement of Vitamin C.

Introduction of apple to America

The apple was introduced to America by early settlers, who brought apple seeds with them. Records of the Massachusetts Bay Company indicate that apples were grown in New England as early as 1630. Seeds were carried westward by missionaries, traders, and Native Americans. One man alone, John Chapman (Johnny Appleseed), was responsible for extensive plantings of apple trees in the midwestern United States.

Apples are versatile tree fruits sold in many varieties for cooking or eating raw. Among the most popular are the slightly tart, red-skinned Rome; the slightly tart, green-skinned pippin and Granny Smith; the mildly tart, red-skinned Jonathan; and the sweet, yellow-skinned Golden Delicious. Controlled storage ensures a good supply of apples the year around. Choose firm, unblemished fruit; store in the refrigerator or in a cool, dark place.

Consumption

Apples, as eaten in the fresh state, are a healthy, refreshing, crunchy snack. They quench your thirst and their acid content makes them a natural mouth freshener. To bite into a fresh picked apple is a memorable experience. The juice is honey sweet and spicy tart at the same time and the flesh is fragrant and crisp.

Scientific classification

Selection

How to Store
