How ‘Bout Them Apples?

It’s an interesting question.

The phrase was in common use in the 1970s.

The most commonly-cited origin is that the “apples” in question were actually small Word War I-era bombs or grenades and the expression was a taunt against the enemy.

On one hand, the n-gram analysis doesn’t seem to support the WWI theory — at the very least the phrase never made it into print the way that other war terms seem to have.  You cite the expression “How about them apples”:

On the other hand, the earliest usage I can find does relate to WWI timeframes, in particular this quotation from a book called History of Company A, 307th Engineer Regiment, 82d Division, United States Army from 1919.  This section of the document, called “Company Reminisces”, appears to be a collection of recollections, sayings, and inside jokes from the referenced Army unit:

Comparing Apples to Oranges

A comparison of apples and oranges occurs when two items or groups of items are compared that cannot be practically compared.

The idiom, comparing apples and oranges, refers to the apparent differences between items which are popularly thought to be incomparable or incommensurable, such as apples and oranges. The idiom may also be used to indicate that a false analogy has been made between two items, such as where an apple is faulted for not being a good orange.
