Kashmir proudly known as the paradise of earth is also home to temperate
fruits like apple for which the state is very famous across the globe. The
main factor which influences temperate fruit bearing trees is soil, climate
and environment which are highly favorable and unparalleled in the province of Kashmir. Apple is commercially the most important temperate fruit and is
fourth among the most widely produced fruits in the world after banana,
orange and grape. Man has very little control over nature especially factors
like the climatic conditions which influences the geographic distribution of
various kinds and varieties of temperate fruits. Although apple can be grown
in all temperate regions including both the northern and the southern
hemisphere it is not possible in the tropical climate of South Asia.
