In the United States, early American children gave teachers apples because the “families whose children attended schools were often responsible for housing and feeding frontier teachers,” according to a PBS special, titled “Frontier House, Frontier Life,” and noted in Smithsonian Magazine. It is also said that farmers’ kids gave struggling teachers apples during the onset of the Great Depression.
