Features and characters of the individual
"Sometimes the wild apple tree is a tree that grows in the forest and produces small, barely edible apples. However, it has a strong resistance to disease. If it is grafted with a variety ('Reine des reinettes', 'Jonagold', 'Gueule de mouton'...), it will combine its resistance with the taste qualities of a good fruit. Here, the aim is to graft these wild apple trees, but this does not mean that you will be able to pick apples. No, because this tree grows in the citizen's nursery of Uccle: a place whose vocation is to produce not fruit, but fruit trees. Apples, but also pears, chestnuts, raspberries, mulberries and other heritage and exotic fruit trees are multiplied here and then replanted elsewhere, in public spaces. At the heart of this production are the citizens who are welcome at the nursery to prune, graft, sow and maintain. If you want to help make the city edible, come and find us!"
