Krolevets is the location of a particularly unique apple tree, which has self-propagated into a colony of fifteen family trees that combined cover an area of 1,000 sq. meters (10,763 sq.feet). This self-propagation, where drooping branches create new roots and trunks, has not been observed in other apple trees.
