Who can say all we know was it was pleasing to behold but knew to obey what was told to not eat from it not to even touch it. But how much do we think we know better than god and what happens when we do the opposite intentionally
I think knowledge would be pine, since they stay alive year around. Evil would be weeping willow, since they can engulf people in its branches and leaves and strangle them to death. Good could be Cherry Blossom... So beautiful.
Who can truly say. I believe, like many, it was a date palm. Why do you think they use these analogies? Remember, those who wrote the first bibles used stories passed down generations by word of mouth only. It was only when it was first written that interpretation of the spoken words came to pass. And as you see, we still seek the interpretation that suits us, as individuals, best! ;)

It is unlikely that eating the fruit truly gave Adam and Eve any further knowledge. It was the act of disobedience that opened Adam and Eve's eyes to evil. Their sin of disobeying God brought sin and evil into the world and into their lives. Eating the fruit, as an act of disobedience against God, was what gave Adam and Eve knowledge of evil (Genesis 3:6-7).
