Siamese Apple

Olive Galbraith asked 10 years ago

I attach a photo of an apple growing in my back garden . I thought I purchased a Bramley apple but it’s not. I have it 2 yrs. Originally I planted it in a border but the fruit was making the branches sag, so before last winter I transplanted it to a back wall where it is supported – fanned out. Photo shows l apple with 2 cores – I call it my “Siamese apple.” Its a novelty to me – have you seen this before?

It is not unusual for apples or other fruits to produce specimens like this, which is due to faulty differentiation of cells when the flowers were forming.
