Scientists claim plants have played a key role in the development of civilisation, and today the contribution of plants to humanity is enormous. Many drugs, oils, dyes, beverages and foods come from plants and it is clear that life could not continue on this planet without them.
According to the book if Genesis, Adam and Eve took the fruit from the "tree of knowledge of good and evil" in the Garden of Eden and "did eat". This plant is commonly referred to as an apple, but apples did not grow in that area, so many scientists now believe the fruit must have been a fig or an apricot.
