Apple Isle[edit]

Why is Tasmania nicknamed the Apple Isle? Is it because they grow apples? Or the geographic shape of the island?? Or is there some link with New York City??? A citable reference would be great. Norman21 (talk) 13:06, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

I found out why, and inserted a paragraph at the end of Soil. Norman21 (talk) 11:54, 1 December 2012 (UTC)


Auto writes - Thanks, Norman. I started at the top. I saw no reference to 'Apple Island' (or 'Isle'). Again thanks!.
