The city of Krolevets, in Ukraine, is home to the world's most special apple garden.It is only one tree. As big as 10 acres(英亩), the 220-year-old tree is known as “apple tree colony”.

At first,the tree is a common tree and had no difference from other trees. But as it aged, its branches(树枝) bent so low to the ground that they started to take root as well.During the season, its pink flowers can only be seen on half the tree, while the other half rests. Its apples—known as Lozovka —are medium-sized and sweet. 

It was said that the tree was planted by Prince Peter Sergeev of the Meshchersky royal family. When he died, the tree was so sad for him and its branches bent to the ground and finally grew to an apple tree colony. The prince was buried under his beloved tree in 1848, and his gravestone(墓碑) is still visible today. Another story says that the prince planted an apple tree on the grave of his wife who died when she was still young.

In 1972, the tree became a national monument of local importance. In 1998, it was a national importance.
