In Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Draco is seen holding a green apple during their first class with Hagrid. This is the first sighting of Draco with an apple. Later, in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Draco puts a green apple in the vanishing cabinet. The apple is transported to Borgin and Burkes, and then sent back to Draco, with a bite taken out. Then, he rubs it fondly.
Drapple is the most popular cargoship in the Harry Potter fandom, as well as one of the most popular ships for Draco. It is also typically one of the ships that most fan agree upon, since it is mostly shipped as a crackship.
Some fans believe that Astoria Greengrass, Draco's wife, is a human form of the apple. Her first name starts with 'A' because she was an apple and her last name is 'Green'grass because she was green. As well, she wears a green dress, further proof of her being a green apple.
Fan art for the pairing is often comedic, but others are serious. Some is Draco eating or just simply holding the apple. The comedic fan art often has Draco over dramatically proclaiming his love for the apple, or just simply talking to it. Fics are also on Wattpad, AO3, and Fanfiction.net.
