When our patriarch Yaakov masqueraded as Eisav to obtain his rightful "firstborn" blessing from his father, Yitzchak, he donned Eisav's cloak. Yitzchak exclaimed, "the fragrance of my son is like the fragrance of a field that G-d has blessed" and blessed Yaakov. The Talmud identifies the fragrance as an apple orchard, and the Vilna Gaon says this happened on Rosh Hashanah. We eat apples (tons of them) because we too want those holy blessings given to Yaakov.
