Legend has it that Adam and Eve were kicked out of the garden for tasting the fruit from the tree of knowledge under pressure from the great snake. The fruit they ate is commonly portrayed as an apple, but that isn’t accurate at all. In fact the fruit they ate does not exist in this world. What they ate was basically a strawberry, a mango and passionfruit all rolled into one. While we’re clarifying things here, they didn’t need Satan pushing them to try the fruit. I mean if you were there wouldn’t the allure of such a fruit be enough for you to risk getting kicked out of paradise? I’m actually surprised they lasted as long as they did. No, it wasn’t the snake’s fault, they just tried to lay the blame on him to get out of trouble and pull a fast one on the man upstairs.
Since the banishment scientists have been working on recreating the holy fruit, with no luck. They just couldn’t get it to graft together properly. There are rumors that sometime around the 14th century someone created a blueberry, mango passionfruit, but really that’s not the same at all. Even modern day scientists are stumped on the genetic makeup of such a fruit. Then in 2006 a tiny juice company thought of the thing that no man of science had been smart enough to comprehend: why not just mix the juices of the three fruits? You may not get the texture, but it sure as hell tastes the same. They took about 4 hours of experimenting with the amounts of each fruit before they thought had it perfect, and perfect it was. All three fruits are distinguishable in the juice, yet when you think about it they also all combine together into some sort of new superfruit, the kind of fruit that you would risk paradise for. In an homage they named their company Apple & Eve and scientists have scorned them ever since.
