Palace Apple Tree

Bulange Apple 11.5.13

 

This is one of our apple trees planted on the main entry drive to Bulange Palace, Buganda Kingdom, Uganda (that statue to the right of the tree is His Majesty, Kabaka Ronald Edward Frederick Muwenda Mutebi II Kimera, Kabaka of Buganda).  There’s a couple more on the front lawns and they’re causing a bit of excitement as they’re growing like weeds, something previously thought not possible at this low elevation in the tropics.  It will be bearing apples in a year and I imagine that will also cause quite a stir.
