That's pretty hilarious, "one of the worlds rarest apples", as if that's an accomplishment for an apple. I can show you hundreds of rarer types of apples, so rare they haven't even been named. I just call them seedlings but if I name one it will be as rare as any apple tree in the history of appledom. Talk about marketing.

That's about what I was thinking. There must be a million seedlings that are one of a kind. As soon as someone takes a scion and grafts a 2nd tree, then that one isn't even tied with all the others as one of the rarest. After a few thousand, it's downright common.
