Meet Wambugu, the Apple farmer Raking Millions

by Juanita Igandu

Wambugu, when you look at him you at first do not get the impression that he is making a lot of money. In fact when you see him with his gum boots tending to his grafted apples you may mistake him for a peasant farmer. But believe you me when I say that he owns at least twenty acres of land in Nyeri, a large heard of grade cows among other investments. 

He started farming apples and in the midst of doing this he discovered a way of grafting the apples the seedlings with the tree maturing in just but eleven months. In this period it is able to grow seeds and one can harvest fruit in a time period of thirteen months. His grafted plants go for one thousand shillings of which he says each tree is able to make fifty thousand shillings per harvesting season which is usually between December and January. Once the trees have matured to a significant extent little care is needed for them to produce fruit. Assuming that if one can only afford to buy ten trees by the end of one and a half years they have made half a million shillings which can be used to purchase more land and more grafted plants.

With a little more care the apples can even be grown for export quality which brings in more money. He often says that it is best to start with fifty trees so as to see the benefits properly. Am sure this is quite a venture for those with large tracts of land which they don’t know what to do it. And off course doesn’t a nice, cool, ripe, juicy green apple taste yummy in the hot Kenyan weather? Best of all it has loads of vitamins to curb short flu like illnesses that appear from time to time when ones immunity has been compromised.
