Older varieties of apple prefer a cooler, moister climate than is generally available in China, so apples used to be imported from Korea and Japan making them an exotic luxury. Wild Chinese apple trees in Northern China are Malus spectabilis hai táng which does not produce sweet fruit but are admired for their blossom in spring. The similar sounding táng means ‘hall’, so a picture of apple blossom can represent the home in a painting. Yù táng ‘Jade Hall’ is another name for the illustrious Hanlin Academy and therefore represents a wish for scholarly achievement. The combination of apple and magnolia together gives the phrase yù táng fù guì meaning ‘be wealthy and honored’. Wild apple blossom may represent female beauty, possibly from the celebrated Yang Guifei being termed the Hai táng nu ‘Paradise-apple maiden’ . ‘Apple’ in Chinese sounds the same as píng ‘peace, calm’ so an apple is a hidden wish for peace. Together with a persimmon shì an apple wishes success in business affairs (shì). A gift of apples or a still life arrangement that includes apples represents a wish for peace.
