Yes Eric, apples are grown all over Africa from Ethiopia to Zambia.  Anna and Dorsett Golden are the most popular varieties and are wonderful in your climate, often producing two crops a year.  Other varieties grown are Rome Beauty, Granny Smith, Lady Williams, and Golden Delicious.  Promising new varieties are Williams' Pride, Dixie Red Delight, Red Boskoop, and Bramley Seedling.

Do a Google search for "growing apples in a warm climate" to get more information and to find nurseries that export to Africa.

Hello, I'm in Nigeria west Africa and I tried to grow apple. My sister bought some big lovely apple probably imported from south Africa. so I decided to grow the seedlings. And to my suprise I saw the first leaf come up under 2 weeks. I planted it in a small container, and left it in a cool place no sunlight. And I've transplant into my garden where there is shade no direct sun and I water it every morning and evening. And its really growing I hope flower comes out and I get the fruits.

I have been growing plants from seeds for at least 20 years. I have grown literally hundreds of different kinds of vegetables, trees, shrubs, annuals, perennials, tropicals, some cacti, water plants, iris, rose, lilies, cannas, etc. I enjoy starting from seed.


I've been growing my own seeds for 20 years with indoor propagation equipment I built myself. I am also an Allexperts volunteer on the perennial forum. I have completed the Master Gardener course through the Kansas State University Extension. I have experience with a wide variety of seeds and I have also read through Norm Deno's books on seed germination.
