Press TV correspondent Gisoo Misha-Ahmadi found the unique apple in Bakran village, located some 60 kilometers from the city of Shahroud in Semnan Province (Iran).  

Bakran farmers say not only are the apples red-fleshed, but the seeds and the young leaves, bark and roots of the trees are also red.

The trees do not get infested and the juicy sweet-and-sour fruit contains more anti-oxidants compared to regular apples.

According to head of Bakran health center, the number of cancer and high blood pressure cases is very low in the village.

People of Bakran use the red-fleshed apple in different traditional foods and jams and as dried fruit treats.

Bakran rural governor told Press TV that the red-fleshed apple is native to the region and the oldest person of the village who died last year at the age of 130 could remember the fruit being produced in the village during his childhood.

Western news agencies released news of the world's first red-fleshed apple produced by Swiss fruit grower Markus Kobert after 20 years of research.

Dubbed the Redlove, the fruit was said to have been grown without using genetic modification technique.

While the seed and sapling company Suttons has secured exclusive rights to sell the fruit trees in Britain, Bakran's red-fleshed apple is only distributed as far as the city of Shahroud.

Questions (FAQs)
    Do you have a printed catalogue?

    No - We have thought about it, but not at the moment, as they way too expensive and somebody has to pay for it down the line. All of our stock can be viewed and purchased from our website which displays live ‘available’ quantities.


    Can fruit trees be grown in containers?

    Yes - All fruit trees can be grown in pots as long as they are large enough. As far as the type of container, clay pots are heavy and stable. Plastic is durable, light and easier to manage, but they have a very short life, till they start cracking. For most fruit, choose pots 50-60cm in diameter. Pots are ideal for dwarfing rootstocks, but any semi dwarfing rootstocks will need potting up to a larger container or planting out into the ground.


    Do you grow Espalier or Fan trained fruit trees?

    No – We do not grow Espalier or Fan trained fruit trees. As they are very easy to train yourself.


    Am I able to turn up and select my own fruit tree?

    No - Sorry we are not a Garden Centre or retail Nursery. Orders can be placed via our website and the collection option can be selected at the checkout. Your order will then be ready for you to collect during our normal opening hours which are Monday-Friday 07.30-16.00. Our plants are grown in fields that are 3 miles away from our office. So it is not possible to just turn up and select your own trees.


    Can you recommend a variety for me?

    No - It is hard to recommend varieties as this is down to personal taste and each variety has its own unique taste. You can see in the best sellers our most popular varieties. Also the local weather conditions has an impact.


    How can I make a donation to support your efforts.

    Yes – There is a product called ‘donation’ which enables you donate.


    Which is best, bare-root or potted trees?

    Yes and No - Each has its own advantages:

    A pot grown tree can be planted at any time of the year. They should start to fruit the following summer after planting. A Bare Root tree is grown in a field and can only be lifted and sent out during the winter months when dormant. They should not be allowed to fruit the first summer after planting.


    What is a rootstock?

    A rootstock is the portion of the tree that grows in the ground. Attached to it is the scion. It is the rootstock that determines the ultimate height that the tree will grow into, and also its suitability to soil conditions. The scion is the actual known variety being grown. This is an identical copy of its original mother tree.


    Can I order rootstocks / scions / trees online?

    Yes – All our sales go through our online shop.
