Apples are the most varied food on the planet, with more apple varieties on record than for any other food, and Ohio has a good share of apple farms. Ohio apple growers produce up to 100 million pounds of apples. 

Although there are no apple farms in Butler County, there are in Warren and surrounding counties. (See list below for area apple farms) 

Over 7500 Variaties

The list of apple varieties topped 7,500 the last time someone counted, including more than 2,500 varieties grown here in the United States. Each apple variety has its own unique flavor, and best uses.

Ohio has approximately 12 varieties:

Ohio Cortland Apple
Ohio Crispin Apple
Ohio Golden Delicious Apple
Ohio Red Delicious Apple
Ohio Apple Growers
Ohio Fuji Apple
Ohio Gala Apple
Ohio Granny Smith Apple
Ohio Jonagold Apple
Ohio Law Rome Apple

Apple Nutrition

Whenever possible, don't peel that apple. Two-thirds of the fiber, and many of the antioxidants, are found in apple's peel. Apples are fat free, sodium free, cholersterol free and are an excellent source of fiber.
