This is an apple from one of the trees at Woolsthorpe Manor, Isaac Newton’s birthplace and where he was living when he first developed the theory of gravity. He watched the apples fall and wondered why they always feel straight down never for example sideways or in another direction. His mother no doubt watched them fall so she could gather them for cooking before they rotted in the grass. We National Trust visitors looked for the fallen ones because those were the only ones we were allowed to take away as souvenirs.
If Isaac had been thinking about pies I doubt he would have been thinking about gravity.
