Some Ghanaians are reacting to a viral social media post of an apple tree which has borne fruit at Wiamoase in the Ashanti Region of the country.

The caption of the post disputes a widely-held assertion that apples cannot be cultivated in Ghana due to the country's climate.

"Growing up, we were told this tree can only survive outside Ghana but thanks be to God this Apple tree is producing its first fruit after five years it was cultivated in WIAMOASE - ASHANTI," the twitter post by the account name, the Kingdom of Asante said.

"It is feasible, you can grow Apple in Ghana 🇬🇭🇬🇭🇬🇭🇬🇭 no need for import. Piawwwww!!!"

Social media users are divided over the variety and type of apple with some calling for more research into the fruit.
