Apples are a popular and healthy fruit, and a big part of American culture and history.
They also have antioxidant properties that help protect against cancer-inducing oxidative damage, which can lead to various health problems.
Apples have five seed pockets, with varying numbers of seeds in each pocket.
Most people avoid the seeds, which have a bitter taste. Or, a person may drink juice that contains pulverized seeds.

So, it seems like a good idea to steer clear of that crunchy center, right?
Some believe that apple seeds are poisonous, while others consider them to be healthful.
