An apple tree planted five years ago in Wiamoase in the Ashanti Region has bore fruits.
The news of the tree was shared on Twitter with the caption;
“Growing up, we were told this tree can only survive outside Ghana but thanks be to God this apple tree is producing its first fruit after five years. It was cultivated in Wiamoase – Ashanti piawwww!!!.”
Although there is a belief that Apple cannot be cultivated in Ghana partly due to the country’s climate and soil, the post by the handler seeks to dispute this myth.
The tree was allegedly planted by a young lady who died shortly after the seed started growing.
The owners are therefore calling on Agricultural researchers and experts to come and examine the tree, and if possible make available seeds and seedlings for mass production.
This according to them will curb further importation of the fruit in the country.
Well, it seems Ghanaians on social media are not only amused by the development but also excited as some took to twitter to share their opinion.
