apple

apple

A tree-grown fruit with wide geographic distribution. Many specialists think that the “apples of gold” in (Prov 25:11) were apricots cf. (Song 2:3). Although the apple has traditionally been considered to be the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge in the Garden of Eden, the biblical text does not mention apples or any other specific fruit (Gen 2:9; Gen 2:17; Gen 3:6).
