Garden of Eden

The "garden" written about in the Old Testament book of Genesis, and in the Koran, in which Adam and Eve were placed after the Creation.

They were supposedly expelled for disobediently eating the forbidden fruit.

Christian"s have been led to believe that this was an apple, and Moslem"s a banana; but both these are unlikely, if not impossible. However, fruit growing at that time in the area included apricots, lemons (known in medieval times as "Persian apples", dates (then called "finger apples" and pomegranates ("apples of Carthage"). See 'Darwin, Charles Robert'
