How is it possible that most of apple genetics are from two trees?

"And here is the most amazing thing yet:  These apple trees are the
source of all apples in the world!  The results of a genetic
sequencing of the trees by researchers* show that the apple forests of
Kazakhstan are without a doubt the birthplace of the apple.  In fact,
at this point, it looks like 90% of the world's apples are descendants
of just two trees."
