: : I was quoted the phrase "A good apple falls apart in threes " and I am wondering what the meaning of this phrase is.

: : If anyone could help it would be much appreciated.

: Never heard it. Did a Google search and found nothing. I don't think it even makes sense: a good apple doesn't "fall apart" at all. The best are firm; this week's favorites are the Fuji and the Honeygold.

Could it have been "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree"?
