Description

The oriental apple is a very rare wild apple tree. It comes from Kazakhstan, Georgia and Armenia - the Caucasus, as thename implies - and is also found in northern Iran.

< br/>It is considered to be one of the two most important ancestors of the cultural apple, which is said to have emerged from a crossing with the Asian wild apple (M. sieversii). It is a rather drought-tolerant foliage tree which reaches heights of up to 12-15 meters and whose small yellow-green fruits are rarely eaten raw, but are generally enjoyed in processed form.

Oriental apple, approx. 10 seeds

The oriental wild apple grows as a small to medium-sized tree. Loves sunny or semi-shaded, slightly humid sites. Seeds germinate best after a three-month cold treatment at approx. 1 °C (Stratification) or protected direct sowing outdoors (germination often only ensueas after some months).
