It takes 2 different trees to make babies. Just like people :)
Growing Apple trees from seed.
That's what I'm going to do. When apples fall off of a tree in nature, it lands on the ground,some are eaten by Animals and the seeds get deposited later because they survive the digestive process,the others just rot into the ground and grow on their own so,I agree that you shouldn't have to do a lot of fancy stuff so,thank you for your suggestion.
How do i get Scion wood is it part of an apple tree and i just get it that way or is it a special peice of wood
So, by the sounds of it, depending on the type of apples you want, you need 2 trees, and somewhere where the elevation causes the tree to frost every winter. Some tree flowers cross pollinate and some are more limited which they pollinate, (other trees don't benefit from its pollen) at least 2 trees have to be able to cross pollinate and can pollinate triploid additional tree[s]. FYI - there are trees you can buy which have up to 6 kinds of apples. IDK, I bet these flowers pollinate each other.
hello theres an OLD Honey Crisp in the yard its all hollowed out to about 4 inch thickness bark on only part of it. it has survived im guessing 80 yrs or so ( best apples imaginable) ive tried starting seeds no luck. this will help give my tree a legacy thankyou all very much:):)
I threw two seeds into a glass of water that I'm sprouting Avo pips in and they've both started to germinate :-D I got the seeds out of an Apple I bought which I didn't think had any chance but Mother Nature rocks! Now to see if they grow any further...
Can i use the same tree to take scion wood?Or i need anothEr one?Thank you.
Why not grafting still produce fruit? I think apple tree need an other kind of apple tree to cross-pollinated. I have 4 apple tree from seed, and hope they will produce fruit in the future:)
yes! i was able to grow 2 varieties of apple (fuji and darwin apple variety). I germinated the seeds by wrapping it a moist paper towel and put it in a jar with lid and let it stay inside the refrigerator for about 3 weeks. I transferred the sprouted seeds in a container and now it's growing taller and taller everyday.you can visit my fb to see the pictures.
wtf? so you don't get apples to grow from a seed from an apple? won't the seed from the apple you want to grow create the tree????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
Not sure what's the temperature in your area, but most (if not all) apple trees will need a period of frost during the year to product apples.Sometime I got lucky and had seed that already started germinating in the apple, but otherwise, I simply put the seed in the soil. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. I planted a seed maybe 12 years ago and previous summer it produced a few apples for the first time (no grafting).
please I want to know the easiest way of making an Apple seeds germinate in a place like Africa?.
Can you please let me know followings things?1. Temperature 2. Soil Type3. Which kind of fertilizer can we use to. Thanks.
I didnt have to do all this fancy stuff in order to get the sproutings. Just go to your nearest walmart or garden atore and get some fertiized soil and a pot, moiaten the soil and take an apple, cut it in half, ge two seeds and pace them together ( you may also do this with two different kinds of apples its called a hybrid) if you place them sde by side they reproduce and that will give you a bettwr chance of having fruit on your tree. Any way , plant your seeds and just water it once a week or make sure tue soil is moist by sticking your finger close to the side of the plant and go down into the soil. Thata really all you need to do not any of this fancy stuff. Good luck guys
My apple sproutlings
do you think it will be successful in the Philippines?
Hey I Realised Something If You Want To Wet You Cant Just Put It Under The Tap As That Can Break Your Paper Towel So I Wet A Towel And Wrapped The Paper Towel With The Towel... Its Logical Really...
Sounds Awesome! Thanks for Sharing your Info on how to Start an Apple Tree from Seeds. Almost all my Apple Seeds Sprouted already so, this is my First Time I gonna Plant an Apple Tree. So, Wish me Luck :))
I wanted made it
Seems easy enough I want a McAntoish apple
I live in Calgary , Alberta I have 2 seedlings which if they come back this spring will have survived 3 winters 1 is putting on growth 1 which mostly dies back each year (both with protection) 2 more on their 2 winter , and 2 more on their first winter. Fun experiment.
I think you should read or perhaps reread Michael Pollans' book Botany of Desire he actually credits John Chapman or people like him with spreading and nurturing apple seeds which have led to most known American varieties.Every garden/Hort/herbal/plant book that I have read that talks about planting seeds mentions 1in 50000 apple seeds will produce an apple as good as either parent. Pollan does not walk that line in his book.As a side note it I have spent a lot of time looking for someone that has actually run the experiment. Gathering 50,000 apple seeds grown and collected under the same growing conditions then planted and germinated under the same conditions and then waited the 3-15 years for the trees to fruit etc,etc. Does anyone actually have that much time, money and land to perform this experiment? I would love to see the results.
It should be interesting to know that however unlikely you CAN create a new variety of hardy or dwarfing root stock from planting a seed just like you can a new apple. The very first rootstocks were found by someone noticing that trees of the same age were definately smaller or some other characteristic. Had nothing to do with magic or fairys. So give it a try. Other that perhaps some "lab" work pretty much every known variety of fruit/ rootstock originated from a seed .
