Apples are one of the easiest fruits to gather - even for little hands. Here are a few tips to get the most out of your apple picking experience:

- Apples on the outside of the tree tend to ripen first. Because there are so many varieties, color isn't necessarily an indication of ripeness. If you're not sure, ask.

- When going to pick your own apple picking farms, choose firm, bruise-free fruit and place it gently in your basket (just throwing them in will make them bruise and go bad more quickly).

- To increase shelf life, keep your apple haul in a cool, dry place, like a basement. Don't wash them until you use them. Then bring on the apple pies, sauce and cider!

Some fun Apple Picking facts:

-Apple trees take four to five years to produce their first fruit.
-There really was a Johnny Appleseed, famous for planting apple trees. His real name was John Chapman and he was born in 1774
-There are about 8000 varieties of apples around the world. Only about 100 types of apples are grown commercially in the U.S.
-After you go apple picking, amaze the kids with this trick: when you slice an apple in half, the core resembles a star.
