Commercial production of apples started as complements in gardens, as field borders or as overstorey trees in pastures. Apples are produced commercially in most countries in the temperate region of the world and also in some tropical areas with high altitude. In the last 100 years production has become increasingly intensified, with the use of dwarfing rootstocks and training systems designed to improve orchard efficiency. Apple is unique among fruit plants in having a range of rootstocks that permit development of a ‘designer tree size’ appropriate to the training system and management skills of modern orchardists.
