So, I have a translated version of Rituals by Cees Noterboom for my English class. As I was reading, I realized the word "Appel" had not been translated as "Apple." Does "Appel" has any sort of negative connotation? Can anyone help? :/

Sentence: "I suppose he came to buy an Appel."

I haven't read the book. Could it be, by any chance, a painting by Carel (I think) Appel? That's the only thing I can come up with..
