From tempting Eve in the Garden of Eden to poisoning Snow White, the apple has a long history of being depicted as the 'forbidden fruit' in art and literature. Agatha Christie wrote a short story titled "The Apples of the Hesperides" which she adapted from an episode in Greek mythology. The eleventh labour of Hercules was to bring the king golden apples from the Tree of Life in the garden guarded by a hundred- headed dragon and the nymphs named Hesperides.


In Christie's story, Hercule Poirot is requested by a rich art collector to find his priceless gold goblet which was stolen soon after he bought it at auction. The goblet has an elaborate design of a tree with a coiled serpent and emerald apples. It takes Poiroit several months to solve the perplexing problem, just as Hercules had unimaginable difficulty in performing the twelve labours.


Originating in Western Asia, the apple tree is believed to have been cultivated earlier than any other tree. As the well-known proverb "An apple a day keeps the doctor away" reminds us, apples are extremely nutritious. In addition to their vitamin content, apples have many other benefits in the kitchen. By producing the gas ethylene they can help to ripen kiwi fruits when stored together, and similarly to prevent potatoes from sprouting.

"The Big Apple" is a famous nickname for New York City. The name of the record label formed by the Beatles is Apple, and it is also the name of the worldwide company which introduced the Macintosh computer, i-Pods, i-Pads and i-Phones. Thanks to these connections, it could be said that the reputation of the apple has ripened over time. It is no longer a forbidden fruit but one that is associated with wealth and success.
