Breath of the Wild
Hyrule Compendium Entry
In Breath of the Wild, Apples are Materials used in cooking Food. This red fruit can be found growing on various trees throughout Hyrule. They're also sold by the General Shoppe and the travelling merchant Gartan near Gerudo Town. Red Hinox also drop apples when defeated.
Apples can be eaten fresh to heal half of a Heart. They can also be cooked into Baked Apples, which heal three-quarters of a Heart. At the Kochi Dye Shop, Apples can be used to create Red Dye.
During the Side Quest "Riddles of Hyrule", Walton will ask Link to bring him something small, red, round, and sweet. If Link drops an Apple on the leaf in front of Walton, he will cheer before moving on to the next riddle.
When using a Cooking Pot, Apples are required in order to make Apple Pie, Hot Buttered Apple, and Energizing Honeyed Apple. Either an Apple or a Wildberry can be used when making a Fruitcake. In addition to other fruits, Apples can be used to make Simmered Fruit, Steamed Fruit, Fruit and Mushroom Mix, and Copious Simmered Fruit
