Since creation, most parts of Africa have been made to accept that an apple can’t be grown on the mainland, since the climate conditions are not good for this natural fruit. Factually, there have never been any country on the African continent that has planted Apples for it to flourishly grow well for consumption.
The beautiful part of this piece is that, history has been made in Ghana, a West African country, as a town in the Asante region of Ghana called Wiamoase has been in the books of records. An apple tree has been found in this town, where the tree is loaded up with huge amounts of apple.
In Africa, the local rough skin apple is common, but the round smooth apple that is produced by the tree Malus domestica, cultivated in mild climate is uncommon. The residents in Wiamoase, are in cheerful states of mind as they are content with this memorable accomplishment.
So how did this come to fruition?
As indicated by the man, Tutu Yamoah, whose house this apple tree is found, his child who has died planted the tree, trusting it will grow one day.
In spite of the fact that he didn’t live to see this fantasy, he (Tutu Yamoah) has been feeding the apple with water for close to five years. The tree has now grown with bunches of apples on them.
Portraying the story, Mr. Tutu Yamoah said, they didn’t believe this would happen, yet after the demise of his child who planted it, they continued taking care of it, and Voilà!, their hard work has been paid off.
The apple tree has now grown with numerous apples on them. Ghana would now be able to flaunt an apple tree which, truly, the round organic product produced by the tree Malus domestica, wouldn’t have been conceivable to be cultivated in this hot atmosphere.
