Growing an apple tree from seed

Recommended Posts

On a whim I kept the seeds from a store bought apple.  Put them in a wet paper towel and in a ziplock bag for a couple weeks.  Well one of the sprouted a root.  So this past Sunday I planted it and I now have growth.  Kinda curious to see how well it does.

If your results are the same as mine, probably not great. I've tried this before with store-bought tomatoes, cucumbers, etc. Sprouts are always green, but they have never yielded great results (whereas produce grown from seeds have been great). I have a feeling produce grown for stores are hybridized or something & that doesn't get passed on through the seeds.

Quite possible.  Many apple producers graft apple limbs onto other trees to help with diseases and bugs, so the seed could produce any manner of a tree.  Will be interesting to see.  I don't care if it produces apples, I already have a tree that does that!
