Apples of Sodom

Apples of Sodom. Found on the shores of the Dead Sea; like a cluster of oranges, yellow to the eye, and soft to the touch; but on pressure they explode with a puff, leaving only shreds of the rind and fibres. The Arabs twist the silk into matches for their guns. Compare "vine of Sodom" and "grapes of gall" in Deuteronomy 32:32.
