Yes, we know that our green version looks a little like Mike Wazowski from Monster Inc. To be fair, so would any vaguely round green thing with one eye. Stick with it, we have more apple yarns than that.

Did you know?

There was no mention of an apple in the earliest days of Biblical creation. The earliest Hebrew texts only mention the generic word for fruit (peri) which Eve ate in the Garden of Eden. However, the phrase ‘apple of my eye’ does seem to originate from biblical translation of a Hebrew phrase ‘the little man of my eye’.

In the days before time, Eris the Greek goddess of strife and discord wasn’t invited to a particular wedding and got a little upset. She decided to go anyway and present a golden apple as a gift. Eris inscribed the apple with the fateful line ‘to the fairest one’. Immediately, three goddesses sought to claim the apple: the goddess of marriage and family, Hera; the goddess of wisdom and justice, Athena; and the goddess of beauty and love, Aphrodite. To cut a long story short, it all went downhill from there and culminated in the Trojan War!

The Romans use different names to depict the same tale. Juno, Minerva and Venus are their goddess’. And lets not forget Disney, Snow White and the evil queen.

And there’s even more!

A personal favourite is a tale of love borne by the fair folk. Connla, a lad born of Celtic royalty is besotted by a vision of loveliness who woos him with song and fairy charm. Before she leaves, the fairy maiden throws Connla an everlasting apple which heals when eaten. This apple is all he eats until she returned, whisking him away on her crystal boat to the Otherworld of everlasting youth to live happily ever after.
