Apples appear in the background in various media in the DreamWorks Dragons Franchise.

Physical Description

Apples are the fruit of the apple tree in the Genus Malus. This genus can include the larger sweet apples that are widely cultivated, or other species with smaller more sour fruits referred to as "crabapples". Apple trees are mid-size deciduous trees that actually belong in the rose Family (Rosaceae).


The main function in both reality and the Franchise for the apple is food. It can be eaten raw or cooked and preserved in a variety of ways. Even the wood of the apple tree emits a pleasant smell when burned and is used to impart different flavors to smoked foods. In "How to Start a Dragon Academy", a dragon is seen stealing a bag of apples, indicating that dragons probably like to eat apples, too. Stormfly is seen eating an entire cart of apples in "Living on the Edge".

The apple also figures into several cultures' mythologies, including Norse. The Goddess Idunn is said to give out apples daily to the Gods that keep them youthful.
