- The Rhode Island Greening was the first named apple in America and is the official state fruit of Rhode Island.
- Greenings are the perfect apple to make apple slumps with - I have no idea what an apple slump is, but if we'd found some Greenings, I certainly would have made a slump or two.
- Rhode Island's official state name is The State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, which is the longest official name of any US State - which is very funny because Rhode Island is the smallest state!
- Rhode Island was the first of the 13 colonies to declare independence from Britian and the last to ratify the US constitution.
