Apples and Their Uses

We added a new addition to our Tropic Apples Body of Knowledge webpage for those folks in tropical countries that are unfamiliar with apples and their uses, cleverly named Apples and Their Uses; an Introduction to the World of Apples.   In it I attempt to show how apples had to be adapted to the new harsh climate of the USA upon their importation from Europe, and how they were used in pioneer life.  There are correlations with tropic countries in that part of our search is for varieties and seedlings that will be adapted to the new environment of high heat, humidity, and lack of winter chill.  I fully expect the apples will be up to the challenge, as God has put in their genetic code wonderous adaptability.
