What does 'the apple Dosent fall to far from the tree' mean?
I have been hearing this phrase a lot lately, just wondering what it means? Thanks

It means you're not much different than your mother or father. Think of it this way,
Apple SEED or child
Since the tree is the parent and the apple is the child the child is close to the tree. This is in figurative terms as well as literal terms.

It means "this" is similar to "that".
