Apple tree from Bošáca
Species: Apple tree (Malus domestica, Borkh.)
Age: 120 years
Region: Bošáca, region Nové Mesto nad Váhom, Slovakia
An apple tree that doesn’t give up
The old apple tree is a monument of fruiterers, whose trees grow and bear fruit for over a hundred years. It is a little known, rare and today almost forgotten regional variety. Today, the tree has a beautiful, scarred trunk. But despite its damage, it has an amazing inner vitality. It always blooms richly in the spring and provides an extremely rich harvest of apples in autumn, which lasts until the next summer. When we sit down in its shadow, we can learn from it how to never give up and face life's challenges.
