Did you know there are over 7,000 apples in the world and many have myths and stories attached? Why do I know this, you may ask? Well, it was all part of my research for my first and second book PAIN and TELEPATHY. One of my favourite stories is of the Bardsey apple which is supposed to be from the rarest tree in the world. The apple was originally grown on the wind swept Bardsey island off the tip of Llyn Peninsular in North Wales and was only recently discovered in 1999 where it was found growing near the remain of a 13th century abbey. They say the tree was tended by monks and it is twisted and gnarled.
They also say 'an apple a day, keeps the Doctor away.' It would take nearly 20 years to eat a different variety of apple a day.
