A miracle apple tree planted five years ago at Wiamoase in the Ashanti Region of Ghana has turned out to be a species of fig.
A Senior Lecturer at the Department of Horticulture of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) after careful observation and study of the tree said the physical characteristics of the tree comes nowhere near apple or even pear.
Growing up, we were told this tree cannot survive in Ghana but can only survive outside Ghana but thanks be to God this Apple tree is producing it’s first fruit after five years it was cultivated in WIAMOASE – ASHANTI.
“The apple has thick mesocarp with long peduncle with seeds attached to it and that’ll be sitting in the pericarp.”
She says a quick look at the tree makes it look like a pear but the internal formation does not look so.
“It’s more of a fig than an apple,” she concluded.
