The fruit is the most famous in history since ancient times, in addition to being the representation of sin in the Bible, it is a fruit that contains a high content of phosphorus, potassium, calcium and multiple vitamins, so the juice of this fruit helps us a improves cognitive functions such as memory and concentration.

What is known with certainty is that the apple was a wild fruit that began to be grafted in ancient times, being the Romans who managed to improve its genetics. In ancient Rome, the apple and its juice were considered an elixir for immortality. This fruit was so important that in the houses of the wealthiest Romans a room lined with marble (pomarium) was reserved for the conservation and storage of this magical food. Centuries later it would be called pomodoro which means golden apple.

When the Spanish arrived in America they brought with them this fruit with a high content of vitamins B, C, phosphorus, potassium and calcium that helped them fight scurvy on their long journey through the sea.

In Amería, new grafts would be made that gave rise to new apple varieties such as Golden Delicious, Red Delicious or Granny Smith.
