The typical American eats nearly 50 pounds of apples and apple products each year. There are many types of apples and apple products, but people have been eating apples for centuries. Apples have a place in American food culture and history.
Some of the most common apple products include applesauce, and apple juice. But there are many more.
Apples are often one of the few fruits available in early fall. They’re rich in vitamin A and C, which are both very beneficial for your immune system.
Apple trees are not able to produce apples until they reach a certain age.Apple trees are usually 4 or 5 years old before they have their first batch of apples on them.
This takes time, but it is worth the wait. The taste of the apple is largely determined by its growing conditions–the weather, soil quality and sunlight.
When is the last time you tasted a delicious apple?
Apple Drawing for Kids
Step 1: Outline the Apple
Outline the shape of the green apple by creating a rounded shape.
Step 2: Add a Bite Mark
Let’s take a bite out of the delicious apple! Form bumpy lines on the apple to add a bite mark. Don’t forget to erase part of the rounded shape that intersects with the bumpy lines.
Step 3: Draw the Stem
Draw a cylindrical shape on top of the fruit. Add a line curving upward where the stem grows out of.
Step 4: Attach a Leaf
Form the shape of a leaf attached to the stem.
Step 5: Draw the Midrib
Add a line on the leaf to create its midrib.
Step 6: Complete the Drawing of an Apple
Let’s complete the drawing of our juicy, green apple! First, use a brown crayon to fill in the stem. Next, use a yellow crayon to color the inside of the apple. Use a dark green crayon to shade the leaf. Finally, take a light green crayon and fill in the rest of the apple.
Let’s Make the Drawing More Fun!
Since we are taking a bite out of the apple, we need a place to put it down. Draw a plate below the apple for it to rest on.
