Apple Tree Day is dedicated to amazing trees that arose incomprehensibly long ago. This is millions of years ago – it was not possible to find out more precisely! It’s great that fruits have survived to this day and we can enjoy their taste, and also celebrate the holidays that are dedicated to them.
Researchers have found plenty of evidence that cultivated trees have existed for over 2000 years. Many scientists agree that this happened on the territory of modern Kazakhstan. To do this, they collected samples of different types of apple trees and were surprised that half of them come from this country. The locals even erected a beautiful monument in the capital and called him “the father of apples”.
For a long time in Europe, the apple has been a staple fruit. When the potato appeared, the inhabitants even called it the “black apple”. In 1826 the merchants settled in Vancouver. Here they actively developed the apple industry. One of the planted trees has seen different years and events, the construction of routes around, various cataclysms … It died only in 2020, at that moment it was 195 years old.
