I think it's more likely to be that apples were very common in the USA, and probably other northern hemisphere countries; and that they keep well. Therefore, even in say the 1800's, they'd be a lot more accessible to most children in those areas during the school year than other fruits would have been.'

However, this is also off the top of my head.
