Rwanda Update Feb. 2011

Received word from Sharon who visited the orchard of Vanessa, a widow in the Lake Kivu region of Rwanda that the orchard is doing well.  Some of the leaves have been chewed on a little, but not bad considering it’s in the middle of the jungle with no sprays.  There is no fungal or bacterial disease, which is also remarkable.  They need to bend the branches horizontal, as there is a lot of vertical growth, but the trees leafed out pretty well and bore a small crop, even the rootstock trees that the scions died off of.  We thank God for watching over this little apple orchard in what was once considered deepest darkest Africa.
