- An apple tree has been spotted growing in the Ashanti region of Ghana to the amazement of all
- What makes the discovery interesting is the fact that apple trees are known to grow only in cold temperatures with high humidity
- Reports indicate that the tree planter passed away shortly after it germinated
An apple tree that was reportedly planted just five years ago at Wiamoase in the Ashanti Region has produced fruit, proving that apples can grow in Ghana.
The video was seen by Briefly.co.za on Twitter as a gentleman who was clearly stunned by the discovery spoke at length about the mysterious tree and urged various stakeholders to come and have a look.
News about the strange tree has been interesting to most people due to the fact that the apple tree is believed to only do well in parts of the world with cold temperatures and high humidity.
Kingsley Abankwa also indicates that the discovery is great news for the country:
Yet, just after five years of being planted in a very dry environment as seen in the video, the tree has grown so comfortably and yielded countless fruit as though it was in its most favourable conditions.
Unfortunately, reports have indicated that the person who planted the tree passed on shortly after it germinated and never got to see it grow.
As sad as that may sound, it appears to also give an important life lesson to plant good seeds anywhere one goes in life as they could bear fruits bountifully for all, even in the most adverse circumstances.
Many social media users have been reacting to the story. HangingFyah strongly opines that the fruit should be preserved as naturally as possible.
