A good year for apples, cultivated and botanical. Malus yunnanensis is no exception. A native to south western Provinces of China. The seed was collected in Yunnan Province from trees growing to six metres on steep wet wooded slopes. A wide spreading small, deciduous tree the fruit is small 20mm in dia, brown skinned and with an acrid taste. Just do not be tempted to sink your teeth in, it is so astringent, it immediately dries the mouth out as the teeth break into the flesh of the fruit.
