@ Madhuri ji, I was also wondering if Malus is the genus of all apples.
The Term "Malus and Bonus" we here so often, which indicates contractual incentive and sanction system between parties
. Why then Malus (Penalty)
for an apple.
I searched and found the following information: (free translation from: http://www.montalegre-do-cercal.com/Pflanzenlexikon/Malus.html
)The Latin word Malus means "Penalty", translates as "evil". Eva seduced Adam in paradise with an apple. Apple = Malus?
At the same
time the emperor holds a golden apple in the hands, everyone knows the story of William Tell even today. The apple has been playing very long time an important role in human culture. Over thousands of years apples were a symbol of wealth, love and fertility.
I don't know about other languages but in german there are so many proverbs around
