A few hours ago, we published here that an Apple tree has been discovered in Ghana for the first time ever. A tree of the fruit has been discovered at Wiamoase — a town in the Sekyere South district, a district in the Ashanti Region of Ghana.
But the question that popped up after we published the first story was, ‘who planted the tree”?
Well, Facebook user “Barima Nana Osei Bonsu“ who was the first person to publicize photos of the Apple tree has answered our question.
According to his findings, the lady who planted that Apple tree is dead. The name of the lady isn’t yet known. However, Barima gathered from the family members of the lady that the tree was planted 5 years ago and just after these few years, it is already bearing fruits.
“The young girl who planted the seed died five years ago, that’s the family attached to the picture. Unless proven otherwise, five years after cultivation… that’s the tree in picture as well. WIAMOASE-Tanosi,ASHANTI”, Barima wrote on his Facebook wall with photos of the lady and her family.
See full photo of the lady below:
This latest discovery is quite surprising as Apples don’t thrive well in a tropical (hot and humid) climate as Ghana has.
Most of commercial apple tree varieties thrive in cold and wet climate, where a cold winter is followed by cool spring and summer. So it’s quite surprising that this Apple tree was able to grow and is even bearing fruits.
