The solid blob on the end of each arm of the Pommee Cross represents an apple, and apples represent the fruits and rewards of living a good Christian life. In the Bible, the apple is always referred to as a treasured item; either as a sweet-smelling fruit, or referring to the apple tree giving shade for a tent or house. It also uses the term apple of one's eye. The eye's pupil used to be called an apple because of its round shape. Because sight was so precious, someone who was called this as an endearment was similarly precious.
