Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
A plant looking like an apple tree was reportedly planted just five years ago at Wiamoase in the Ashanti Region has produced fruits bountifully as a recent trending video has shown.
The video was sighted by YEN.com.gh on Twitter as a gentleman who was clearly stunned by the discovery spoke at length about the tree and urged various stakeholders to come and have a look.
News about the tree has been interesting to most people due to the fact that real apple tree is known and believed to only do well in parts of the world with cold temperatures and high humidity.
See video below:
Yet, just after five years of being planted in a very dry environment as seen in the video, the tree had grown so comfortably and yielded countless fruits as though it was in its favourable conditions.
Unfortunately, reports have indicated that the person who planted the tree passed on shortly after it germinated and never got to see it grow.
In an interesting turn of events, it has been revealed that the tree is not actually an apple. Some have described it as a Morro tree whilst others have called it a type of fig because of its unusual features.
Many social media users have been reacting to the story.
HangingFyah strongly opines that the fruits needed to be preserved as natural as possible.
According to Glory days, there has always been a kind of apple in Ghana
Kingsley Abankwa also indicates that the discovery was great news for the country
Meanwhile, another interesting story by YEN.com.gh says a skit of Kuami Eugene starring Comedian Waris, Stonzy and Ohene Yaw Wiafe Anim has shown that the Ghanaian Rockstar musician could actually be a great actor.
In the video, Eugene Kwame Marfo as his real name goes, was in his car with his pals when he was besieged by a group of bypassers he appeared to have nearly hit with his car.
When the near-collision occurred, the group of young men came to the driver's side to complain about the incident only for the glass to be rolled down for them to realize it was Kuami Eugene.
