Stalking the fruit

I wonder if an apple is being sold with its stalk only in France. Or do they sell apples with stalk everywhere. I also wonder if the stalk if part of the apple or part of the apple tree. Where does the apple start, beyond or beneath the stalk? It's very important, since the apple is supposed to be the legendary forbidden fruit. If the apple stalk isn't part of the forbidden fruit, we can hold the fruit and watch it, desire it, without offending God, which is a new freedom.
