International Eat an Apple Day is celebrated every year on the third Saturday in September. The purpose of International Eat an Apple Day is to promote apple consumption. 

The date this time is September 17. The day is a special day to honour this crunchy fruit because they say an apple a day keeps the doctor away. On this unique day, apple lovers from all over the world come together to eat apples from all over the globe. 

Participants take pleasure in consuming apple-based foods and drinks and exchanging apple recipe ideas. They also exchange tips on how to enhance the enjoyment of apples.

History and Significance

Apples were first discovered in central Asia, close to the Tien Shan mountain range in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan. Apples were introduced to Europe by traders who travelled along the silk road, a commercial route linking China and eastern Europe.

The apple was introduced to America by European settlers, and it's believed that the first apple trees were planted in Massachusetts Bay Colony.

Apples also frequently appear in poems and stories. One well-known tale we heard was from the Arabic Nights, which claimed that eating an apple could cure all human diseases.
