What does he mean by that? What does "them" here refer to? Can I say "How do you like apples?" instead?
In some parts of America (especially in the Southern states), people use "them" to replace the word "those." It's not considered to be standard English, but it is used fairly commonly. You can just interpret "how do you like them apples" as meaning "how do you like those apples" here. Ex: How do you like them fries? They taste good? Ex: Let's eat them pies!
