Apples for All

To satisfy the sharp desire I had / Of tasting those fair apples, I resolved / Not to defer; hunger and thirst at once / Powerful persuaders, quicken'd at the scent / Of that alluring fruit, urged me so keen.
—John Milton, Paradise Lost

Like most things of value in this world, apples seem simple on the surface: peel, flesh, core, seeds. But look deeper and their complexities become apparent.
