Since the early 1900s, when irrigation projects began in the west, Washington state has led the United States in apple production. They are followed by New York, then Michigan, California, and Pennsylvania. The US as a whole produces way more apples than any other country: about 36% of the world total! We have John Chapman, better known as Johnny Appleseed, and other pioneers who spread apple trees around the country, to thank for that.
Apples did not come from North America originally, however: the genus derives from the Eastern Turkey/Southwestern Russia region.
In 2009, the top five apple varieties grown in the U.S. were Red Delicious, Gala, Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, and Fuji.
