They become aware of their "nakedness" and make fig-leaf clothes, and hide themselves when God approaches. As to which fruit may have been the forbidden fruit of the Garden of Eden , possibilities include apple, grape, pomegranate,  fig ,  carob ,  etrog or citron ,  pear , and mushrooms.
The pseudepigraphic Book of Enoch describes the tree of knowledge: "It was like a species of the Tamarind tree, bearing fruit which resembled grapes extremely fine; and its fragrance extended to a considerable distance. I exclaimed, How beautiful is this tree, and how delightful is its appearance! An alternative view is that the forbidden fruit is metaphorical, possibly the fruit of the womb, i.
In his Autobiography of a Yogi , Hindu spiritual teacher Paramhansa Yogananda cites an interpretation by his master Swami Sri Yukteswar Giri that the Garden of Eden refers to man's body, with the fruit in the center being that of the sexual organs. In Western Europe , the fruit was often depicted as an apple.
The larynx , specifically the laryngeal prominence that joins the thyroid cartilage , in the human throat is noticeably more prominent in males and was consequently called an Adam's apple , from a notion that it was caused by the forbidden fruit getting stuck in Adam's throat as he swallowed it. Rabbi Meir says that the fruit was a grape, made into wine. The Bible states in the book of Genesis that Adam and Eve had made their own fig leaf clothing: "And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig-leaves together, and made themselves girdles".
Rabbi Nechemia , based on the Talmud, supports the idea that the fruit was a fig , as it was from fig leaves that God made garments for Adam and Eve upon expelling them from the Garden. Since the fig is a long-standing symbol of female sexuality, it enjoyed a run as a favorite understudy to the apple as the forbidden fruit during the Italian Renaissance.
The most famous depiction of the fig as the forbidden fruit was painted by Michelangelo Buonarroti in his masterpiece fresco on the Sistine Chapel ceiling. Proponents of the theory that the Garden of Eden was located somewhere in what is now known as the Middle East suggest that the fruit was actually a pomegranate , a plant indigenous from Iran to the Himalayas and cultivated since ancient times.
Rabbi Yehuda proposes that the fruit was wheat , because "a baby does not know to call its mother and father until it tastes the taste of grain. In Hebrew, wheat is "khitah", which has been considered to be a pun on "khet", meaning "sin". Although commonly confused with a seed, in the study of botany a wheat berry is technically a simple fruit known as a caryopsis , which has the same structure as an apple.

Just as an apple is a fleshy fruit that contains seeds, a grain is a dry fruit that absorbs water and contains a seed. The confusion comes from the fact that the fruit of a grass happens to have a form similar to some seeds. A fresco in the 13th-century Plaincourault Abbey in France depicts Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, flanking a Tree of Knowledge that has the appearance of a gigantic Amanita muscaria , a psychoactive mushroom. Allegro proposed the mushroom as the forbidden fruit.
The similarities of the story to the story of Pandora's box were identified by early Christians such as Tertullian , Origen , and Gregory of Nazianzus. According to the Quran , Surah Al-A'raf describes Adam and his wife in Paradise where they may eat what is provided, except that they may not eat from one particular tree , lest they be considered Zalimun wrongdoers.
