What do you think when you hear the word “apple”? A teacher’s desk? A fruit-laden orchard strewn with ladders and bushel baskets? A steaming pie? Whatever the image that jumps to mind, it’s likely to be a vision of autumn. Sinking your teeth into a crisp, sweet apple is much like the first step out your front door on one of the early brisk mornings of fall—a true sign of the season, and of cooler days to come.
