Nine legends about the apple.

1. Since ancient times, the apple has been considered a symbol of temptation. The roots of this superstition come from Scripture. It was the apple that Adam and Eve plucked from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for which they were expelled from Paradise.

2. There is a myth of the Judgment of Paris. According to him, the Trojan prince Paris enchanted an apple to Hera, Aphrodite and Athena, in order to resolve the dispute over which of them is beautiful. The king's daughter Aphrodite promised him to wife Sparta and blessed him. Paris stole the king's daughter, which was the beginning of the Trojan War, and the gift of Paris received the catch phrase "apple of discord".

3. In Scandinavian mythology, their rejuvenating apples are presented, which gave the eater longevity and eternal youth.

4. The Persians believed that if you eat 40 apples at once, before biting the blow, then any wish will come true.

5. In heraldry, an apple is a sign of peace.

6. According to legend, drowning apples in the bath, Archimedes discovered his famous law.

7. The Celts believed that if you throw the peel from an apple over your shoulder, then in what form it will land, so narrowed to you is intended.

8. In Slavic mythology, an apple is a symbol of fertility, health and beauty. Among the southern Slavs, it was customary to present an apple as an invitation to a wedding.

9. Isaac Newton discovered the law of gravity by watching fruits fall from trees in his garden. For me, apples are primarily a joy. Taste when sweetness is replaced by sourness and vice versa, when the juice of a bitten off apple is felt on the tongue. A color that can be so different with a perfect gradient, or exactly the same color.
