This is generally supposed to refer to the citron but apples grow in Palestine, and the Arabicname for the apple (tuffuh ) differs little from the Hebrew word, tappuach . Others believe the quince is alluded to, which is fragrant and of a golden colour. Song of Solomon 2:3,5; Song of Solomon 7:8; Song of Solomon 8:5; Joel 1:12 . In Proverbs 25:11 "a word fitly spoken" is like some elegant device, as "apples of gold in pictures [or baskets] of silver."
