Default Bahraini Apple Question

I am sure that all of you have noted that a lot of products on the moassel market are called "Bahraini Apple" or something very similar and since I can't imagine that apples are actually grown in Bahrain I winder what was the inspiration for thisflavour?

The Bahraini is the tobacco blend not the apples. Also Eskandarani in Eskandarani Apple (which is Arabic for Alexandrian) applies to the blend.

I guess - but no citations or supporting evidences here - that this is just the name of the blend. or that this is how they blended it in Bahrain !

Bahraini apple is traditionaly a sweeter, red apple type flavor while eskandarani apple is the more bitter green apple.
I'm sure there are apples grown in Bahrain. Probably not indigenously, however.

I spent some time hunting around the net and I can't find anything to indicate that apples are actually gown in Bahrain or Alexandra. It just seems strange to make a moassel flavoured like something that apprently doesn't exist. Of course the same can be said about Kashmir Peach. However, I have had moassel that is labeled "Jaffa Orange" and such a fruit really does exist.

Hahaha, you got a point. I don't mind the whimsy of the names. A lot of the old fashioned brands are named for poets, emperors and great generals and for the most part the flavours that bear the names have nothing to do with those people. Still, as long the product is a good value I suppose it doesn't matter. By the way, I love Salloum Bahraini Apple and the apple stuff that AF makes as well.
