Chinese Cherry Apple
the mother of all apples

The eastern Himalaya mountains extending to West China are most likely the place of origin of our apples. Here, in landscapes of breathtaking beauty, old apple trees are still kept in home gardens. When we first saw those apples, we were convinced they were cherries - until an old farmer lady offered us a hand full to eat: the fruits revealed the origin of the apple's taste to us.

Since then we are searching for all trees that have survived "development" for the 'Golden Delicious', and we can assure you: delicious is what we were offered in the Tibetan mountains.

At TianZi we have embarked in working with the farming communities of remote mountain areas to protect and utilize their ancient apple crop. Fair trade prices allows the farmers to make income from their old trees and successfully compete with the modern (and often tasteless) apples.

The Cherry Apple is also used in local medicine to solve kidney problems and remove kidney stones. The small apples make an excellent dried fruit, which will soon be available for international markets. Please write to us for wholesale prices.


From the distance, cherry apples truly look like cherries.


On closer look, they are cherry-sized apples in stunning red.


Even on closest look, the apples are resembling cherries in colour and shape.


At TianZi, we are sun-drying these very special and tasty little apples and offering them to international trade. Thus, we wish to contribute to saving the species and giving better income to local ethnic communities in the Himalayan mountains of China.

Your purchase contributes to fair trade and the protection of endangered agro-biodiversity.

We encourage importers (wholeseller; grossiste; mayorista) to consider contract growing of crops through our farmers in remote areas. You will benefit from products free of pesticides and you contribute to an improved livelihood for the ethnic minorities of Yunnan.

Some of our crops are collected in the buffer zones of National Parks and Nature Reserves of China. We are co-operating with the park administrations to support sustainable harvesting of secondary forest products.

Your ecologically friendly production:
proudly traceable!


Imagine, the traceability of your products leads your customers to the tropical jungles of the Mekong river and to the Himalayan mountains where Tibet meets Yunnan. Immerged in diverse culture and rich biodiversity, your customers can visit the places and people where your products start from pristine soils, clean air, and where they support the livelihood of local ethnic communities.

Would this add to the sustainability and credibility of your business?

Would your trademark benefit from international research publications lauding your company's involvement in saving the rain forest?

If you are in the food, cosmetics, flower, herbal, and medical business, certifying your products as contributing to biodiversity protection will be an advantage with a competitive edge.

The TianZi Biodiversity Centre is working with German Universities to design land use systems, which are bound to change paradigms: we promote rare agro-biodiversity species, manage complexity, and find alternatives to destructive forms of mono culture.

If all this is in line with your company's business concept - please contact us.
