Organic apples are commonly produced in the United States. Organic production is difficult in Europe, though a few orchards have done so with commercial success, using disease-resistant cultivars and the very best cultural controls. The latest tool in the organic repertoire is a spray of a light coating of kaolin clay, which forms a physical barrier to some pests, and also helps prevent apple sun scald.
Apples are usually found in the produce section or aisle of the grocery store or supermarket.
Apples are a member of the Fruits and Fruit Juices USDA nutritional food group.
