The 2years Old Original Apple In My Dad Compound by Lstar4real(m): 9:57am On Nov 08, 2015
Hello guys

My dad planted this apple 2years and some months ago....when it was planted most of our neighbours don't know what its all about until it started growing fast and some neighbours used to boast of it and brought their friends to our compound to see the Apple Tree.... Original Apple precisely that most of us thought it can't grown well on our soil....Just maybe our community soil is unique after 2years and some month Just notice yesterday that the Apple tree has started producing Apple.....and very cute looking U Can also try it if it will grow in your compound. .. ..I promise to update this thread when the seed become bigger....check it out Thanks

Re: The 2years Old Original Apple In My Dad Compound by dgitrader(m): 8:14am On Nov 13, 2015
its the local apple. far different from the packaged and imported ones. when the foriegn apple flowers, its usually white in color. not pink or red as seen in your picture. what u have here is BELL APPLE, BUT dont be disappointed because its equally delicious and crunchy too. but be ready to entertain bats when it starts fruiting too. they love that apple die.


BELL APPLE.

Those are the green pear-shaped apples, at first i thought they the pink Nigerian apples. Do you use any type of fertilizer to enhance it's growth?

its not green pear. ...we got pear in our compound but still young....This is original apple Just getting bigger.. When it finally grow big I will update it...our fowls used to slept on the tree and poo on it.. Its alsobfertilizer which I think enhanced the growth...The apple don't like dirty stuff.. Those fowls poo spoiled some of the seeds before we finally chased them away...

Red Stark apple will do well even in the Southwest.

That is good to hear, but why are we not cultivating it, why do we keep on importing it because am yet to see it. we are not practicing agriculture at all in Nigeria.

Started from seeds two years ago and its already this big and fruiting? Its hard to believe, apples usually take as much as 5 to 7years before they start fruiting. I'm following keenly.
Also please post the exact method used to germinate the seeds. Did your dad stratify the seeds?
