Over the centuries there has been confusion between the apple and quince 
as it has been called the "golden apple." Although it can be found still 
growing wild, during the Middle Ages, Greeks and Italians cultivated it 
and it spread throughout the Mediterranean and Europe. Perhaps Paris 
gave Aphrodite quince and not an apple. What about Eve? Was there a 
quince tree in the Garden of Eden?
