Other use

Malus domestica Baumg. Rosaceae. 'Court Pendu Plat' Distribution: Central Asia, arising from the wild Malus sieversii. This cultivar dates from around 1600 and is a sweet eating apple introduced from France.. 'Cox's Orange Pippin' is a variety of Malus domestica. Apples are not mentioned in Fuchs (1542), or Culpeper (1650). Lyte (1576) says they cause indigestion, but are cooling so may be used in fevers ('hot agues') and the leaves can be applied to hot swellings. Parkinson (1640) writes that 'the sweet apples, as the Pippin and Pearmain, helpe to dissolve Melancholy humours, to procure mirth and expel heaviness'.
