Emoji dictionary 🍎 Red Apple emoji [red ap-uh l ih-moh-jee] What does 🍎 Red Apple emoji mean? Ahh, the classic red apple, with a solitary green leaf and perky stem. This crisp piece of fruit can represent anything related to food (especially healthy eating), school days and education, or the fall season. Is it a Red Delicious? A Gala? Maybe a Honeycrisp? Mmmm. We don’t know, but we’re hungry regardless.

The red apple emoji has been around for a while, first approved as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010 and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015. It signifies so many things, but it is mostly used in posts relating to food and the fall season. In addition to being a symbol for that delightful change of season (apple picking time!), it also represents education and teachers, and is a nod to Manhattan, or New York City, which has the nickname “Big Apple.” That nickname was coined by a sports writer in the 1920s and then picked up and revived by marketing agencies in the 1970s for a promotional campaign … guess it worked. The origins of the apple as a signifier for things related to school go back to the 1700s, when families in countries like Denmark would pay their teachers with baskets of apples. American families continued the tradition, with an occasional apple-for-the-teacher token until the early- to mid-1900s. It’s especially fitting since the apple long represented wisdom, going back to Greek mythology. And, let’s not forget the role of the apple in the story of Adam and Eve; that first bite set a new course for man/womankind!

Of course, apple picking is big in the fall, and that’s when apples really shine. I am the reason stores put fall decor out early. 🌽🍂🍎🌻🍁🎃 — Rachel✨ (@iitsrachel_xo) August 24, 2018 RT if one month is too long to wait for #Fall to start. 🍂 🥧 🍎 #Scentsational pic.twitter.com/Jeqv25oulB — HGTV (@hgtv) August 22, 2018 Apple picking time is so close we can taste it!
