I wish to grow apples, but my question is: is it possible to grow them in Tanzania?. And what are the procedures to grow apples? And what kind of seed is growing in Tanzania. Where can I get it and how much?

I read the article  – ‘Little Apples Trees – grafted on M27’ by Adrian Baggaley on your main website. I would like to know more about M27. What is this M27 and where could I buy it? I garden in Malaysia.

I would be interested in hearing if anyone knows of the existence of the American apple Ames, other than the trees held in National Fruit Collection at  Brogdale, Kent  and at Royal Horticultural Society garden at Wisley, Surrey. I think this cultivar might be extinct in the USA, and possibly everywhere except Brogdale and Wisley.
