An apple is an edible fruit produced by an apple tree.

Apple trees are cultivated worldwide and are the most widely grown species in the genus Malus.

The tree originated in Central Asia, where its wild ancestor, Malus sieversii, is still found today.

Apples are a Pome Fruit.

Pome fruits are members of the plant family Rosaceae, sub-family pomoideae.

They are fruits that have a "core" of several small seeds, surrounded by a tough membrane.

The membrane is encased in an edible layer of flesh.

The class of fruits that are considered citrus fruits include lemons, limes, oranges and grapefruit, as well as many more hybrids and varieties.

They have a bunch of health benefits, from boosting immunity to fighting cancer.

Citrus fruits are those fruits that are acidic fruits such as oranges, lemons etc.

Apples are not acidic fruits so they are not citrus fruits.
