The Enchanting Role of Fruits in Snow White's Story


Snow White is a beloved character from the Brothers Grimm's fairy tales, and her story has been adapted into numerous films and adaptations over the years. While the story focuses on themes of beauty, jealousy, and love, the presence of fruits throughout the narrative adds an extra layer of symbolism and magic.

Still credit: By, Fair use,

In Snow White's story, fruits are not just a source of sustenance; they represent temptation, transformation, and, ultimately, a catalyst for the princess's journey. Let's explore how these fruits play a vital role in shaping the narrative and the lessons they teach us.

Fruits in the Story of Snow White

In the fairy tale Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, there is one fruit that plays a significant role in the story. This fruit is the poisoned apple, which is given to Snow White by the evil queen disguised as an old woman. The apple is a central element in the story, as it puts Snow White into a deep sleep, causing the dwarves to believe she is dead.


It’s a red apple, which is the object of the queen's jealousy and desire to be the fairest in the land. The queen uses her magic to transform the apple into a poisoned one, with only one side being dangerous. 


The red apple serves as a vital plot device in Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, representing the dangers of vanity and the consequences of succumbing to temptation.

Red Apples in Folklore 

In folklore, red apples are often associated with various symbolic meanings. Here are some explanations of the symbolism and meaning of red apples in folklore:

Temptation and Sin

One of the most well-known associations with red apples comes from the biblical story of Adam and Eve. In this story, a red apple is said to have been the forbidden fruit from the Tree of Knowledge, which Eve was tempted to eat. As a result, red apples are often seen as a symbol of temptation, sin, and the fall of humanity.

Love and Romance

Red apples are also commonly associated with love and romance. In many fairy tales and folktales, the red apple is often used as a symbol of love or as a token of affection between characters. It can represent desire, passion, and romantic relationships.

Wealth and Abundance

In some cultures, red apples are seen as a symbol of wealth and abundance. This association may stem from the idea that apples were once considered a luxury fruit and were often associated with prosperity and good fortune.

Healing and Vitality

Red apples have long been associated with health and vitality. They are often seen as a symbol of nourishment and healing. In folklore, red apples are sometimes associated with magical or healing properties, and they are often used in rituals or remedies to promote well-being and vitality.

Youth and Immortality

In certain mythologies and folklore, red apples are associated with youth and immortality. Red apples can symbolize the desire for eternal life or the pursuit of eternal youthfulness.

Knowledge and Wisdom

Red apples can also represent knowledge and wisdom. This symbolism may stem from their association with the forbidden fruit in the biblical story of Adam and Eve. Red apples can symbolize the pursuit of knowledge, curiosity, and the quest for wisdom.

Why The Red Magic Apple in Snow White

The red color of the apple symbolizes temptation and danger. Red is often associated with passion and desire, but it can also represent warning signs or caution. By making the apple red, the Grimm brothers were able to create a visual representation of the danger that Snow White would face by taking a bite from it. 


The apple being magical adds an element of mystery and enchantment to the story. It introduces a supernatural aspect to the narrative, making it more intriguing and captivating for readers. The magic apple also serves as a plot device that allows for the transformation and subsequent resolution of the story.

Final Thoughts 

The role of fruits in Snow White's story is truly enchanting. From the poisonous apple that puts Snow White into a deep sleep to the magical power of true love's kiss that breaks the spell, fruits play a significant role in shaping the narrative. 


They symbolize temptation, danger, and, ultimately, redemption. The use of fruits in Snow White's story reminds us of the power of nature and its ability to both harm and heal. It serves as a reminder that even in the face of darkness, there is always hope and the potential for a happily ever after.
