you are the apple of my eye

Meaning you are 'the most beloved', this expression goes back a long way - as far back as the old testament. Translated as 'prunelle de mes yeux' in French I was wondering how it translates into other
languages. Can you help?
Food, one of the necessities of life, figures often in traditional expressions. Fruits and vegetables, specifically, account for some of the most familiar.

Some other expressions with apples:

Don't upset the apple cart
Compare apples and oranges
As easy as apple pie
Bad apple
Rotten to the core
