We do not know exactly what plant, of all the plants available to them, that Adam and Eve ate of, while in the Biblical Garden of Eden (Genesis 3:6). It has been suggested that it was a fruit that Eve partook of, perhaps an apple. YMMV.

However, if it was a tree, it may have been a fig tree, similar to the Bodhi Tree of Indian Buddhist legend - the sacred Ficus religious.

The sacred tree in Micronesian mythology is the banana tree, whose origin is related to the idea of Manna and the myth of the Tree of Plenty. Go figure.
