East African Apple Growing

Building42_Teams_Uganda_..._set_for_the_Apple_Orchard

It has been a busy season for the Uganda branch of our nursery.  They’ve spent quite a bit of time traveling to client’s orchards in Tanzania, bringing neglected apple trees back into productivity.  They’ve also hosted growers from Tanzania and Ghana who have traveled to Uganda to learn apple culture by working along side the Uganda team.

We’re happy to say the apple trees are looking great, the training system is working well and the trees are responding.  We’ve shown that it is indeed possible to control the runaway apical dominance and vertical vegetative habit that is typical of apple trees in the tropics and convert it to a calm, productive tree.  While other people are just sticking their toes in tropic apple culture, we’ve dived in headfirst and have been swimming for years, and now the orchards are proving that we’re right.
