Two apple tree varieties are common in Europe since the sixteenth century, paradies apple tree and apple Doucin (or douçain). These vernacular names were long used. Originally they were discribe as separate species, but they are actually varieties of Malus pumila "standard" but they have specific characteristics that makes them particularly apt for use in rootstock. If Doucin may be of different sizes, Paradise apple tree is always a small tree (The specific Latin term pumilus, dwarf, takes on all its meaning). Its root break such as glass. It gives a very poor apple in size and quality, but those apple matures very early, at the end of July and are yellowish, spotted with brown and are red-striped on the side of the sun.

She created a balm made from juice, sap, buds which was added its weight of olive oil. It was the "pommade" and the word went around of the world.
This tree symbolizes the tree of knowledge and the original sin.
