The Forbidden Fruit Picture

This little apple has some history with our human race; real or not.

First of all, Adam and Eve. They got kicked out of the Garden of Eden because they ate the apple on the tree of knowledge.

Second, Snow White. She got tricked and ate the apple that the creepy old hag gave her thus making her pass out until her true love came to break the spell.

Third, Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl. Barbossa is obsessed with the apple. All he wants to do is get his taste back so he can eat one. He also tries to poison Elizabeth Swan with it.

Fourth, the one we ALL know, Twilight! The cover of the book has a pair of hands holding the apple and Stephenie Meyer even said why she picked that to be the cover art. She kind of explains all my reasons right here in this quote: "The apple on the cover of Twilight represents "forbidden fruit." I used the scripture from Genesis (located just after the table of contents) because I loved the phrase "the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil." Isn't this exactly what Bella ends up with? A working knowledge of what good is, and what evil is. The nice thing about the apple is it has so many symbolic roots. You've got the apple in Snow White, one bite and you're frozen forever in a state of not-quite-death... Then you have Paris and the golden apple in Greek mythology—look how much trouble that started. Apples are quite the versatile fruit..."
