Uganda Apple Nursery

Nursery 7.3.13

Our Uganda team has done a wonderful job innovating ways to receive, graft, sprout, and transport apple tree seedlings in an area with little to no refrigeration, and has built up an inventory of the finest tropic-adapted apple varieties grafted onto virus-free clonal rootstock.  These seedlings are as good of quality as are being grown in commercial orchards in the major apple-growing regions of the world.  This same team has been extensively schooled on training these trees to be productive in a tropic climate, which requires skill and experience.  The next few years will be the turning point of apple culture in East Africa as the trees and the farmer’s skills start to bear fruit.
