apples are the most popular fruit. In Greek mythology, apples were associated with the healing god Apollo, perhaps the source for the modern-day adage that an apple a day keeps the doctor away. are the apples that nutritious that they qualify for that post.

Don't go by the proverb "Apple a day keeps the doctor away".There are a lot of fruits that are more nutritious like best being banana.I don't say apple is not nutritious.Keeping the cost factor on our tropical areas apple would be little costly for everyone to afford.There are other fruits that are more economical.

hello dev21lucky, ya that is the saying that we have been told since our childhood. fruits are indeed nutritious, they provide a wide range of vitamins and a lot of anti oxidants. this would keep a lot of diseases at the bay. now you told that banana is the most nutritious fruit, but i think that it is that fruit that supplies the maximum calories. apple has the widest range of nutritious value. have a good day and happy postings!
