Appalachian Mountains: “Did you know apples are grown on a mountain? It’s called the Apple-achian.”

The Appalachian Mountains aren’t made of apples, but people sometimes joke about the “Apple-achian” Mountains. “I wanna climb the highest peak of the #APPLE-achian Mountains” was posted on Twitter on December 10, 2010. “Apple-achian Cider” was trademarked by the Dark Corner Distillery (Greenville, SC) in 2011.

A joke was posted on Twitter by “dad jokes” on May 7, 2018:

“Did you know apples are grown on a mountain? It’s called the Apple-achian.”


Wikipedia: Appalachian Mountains
The Appalachian Mountains (/ˌæpəˈlæʃɪn, -ˈleɪtʃɪn/. French: les Appalaches), often called the Appalachians, are a system of mountains in eastern North America. The Appalachians first formed roughly 480 million years ago during the Ordovician Period. They once reached elevations similar to those of the Alps and the Rocky Mountains before experiencing natural erosion. The Appalachian chain is a barrier to east-west travel, as it forms a series of alternating ridgelines and valleys oriented in opposition to most highways and railroads running east-west.
