There are more than 7.500 known cultivars of apples, resulting in a range of Desired characteristics.



One form of apple allergy, Often found in northern Europe, is called birch-apple syndrome, and is found in people WHO are also allergic to birch pollen. The variety of apple, maturity and storage conditions can change the amount of allergen present in individual fruits. Long storage times can increase of the amount of proteins That cause birch-apple syndrome.


Individuals with this form of allergy can also develop reactions to other fruits and nuts. Cooking does not break down the protein Causing this particular reaction, so affected individuals can not eat either raw or cooked apples. Breeding Efforts have yet to Produce a hypoallergenic fruit for either of the two types of apple allergy.

However, apple seeds are mildly poisonous, containing a small amount of amygdalin, a cyanogenic glycoside.


The predominant phenolic phytochemicals in apples are quercetin, epicatechin, and procyanidin B2. Researchers at the Chinese University of Hong Kong WHO Discovered That fruit flies were fed an apple extract lived 10% longer than other WHO flies were fed a normal diet.
