Apple is named Apple after the fruit, and because Silicon Valley was based in fruit orchards. It also appealed to Steve Jobs because he was a fruitarian when the company was formed, and only ate fruit. Steve Jobs wanted the company name to come before Atari in the PhoneBook.

Can dogs eat apples?

Apples are wonderful crunchy treats for your dog.
Apples with the skin on are full of plant chemicals (phytonutrients) that are thought to be protective against some types of cancer in humans. Apple seeds, however, contain cyanide so your dog should not be allowed to eat the core.

Is an apple a berry?

Subcategories within the fruit family—citrus, berry, stonefruit or drupe (peaches, apricots), and pome (apples, pears)—are determined by which parts of the flower/ovary give rise to the skin, flesh and seeds. But no, they're actually considered a berry, too—with one, giant seed.

Apple trees are potentially propagated by rooting hardwood cuttings taken from the desired tree, although this is not very common because apple cuttings are fairly difficult to root. Apple trees may also reproduce asexually with root cuttings taken from young apple trees in late winter before new growth begins.
