The Golden Apple

 May 10, 2013 @ MoC

What exactly do we mean when we refer to “golden apples”, a common idiomatic expression. Is it “oranges” and “quinces”, is it “Eris” and “discord”, or is it “immortality”? The golden apples appear in many national folk legends and fairy tales… Some are briefly reviewed here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_apple
Τhere’s also the Biblical, “Like golden apples set in silver is a word spoken at the right time”.
