You can grow an apple plant from seeds but you may have to wait for a very,very long time to pick an apple- if at all.

Look on it as a bit of fun -the kids get a kick out of it- but as for growing a proper fruiting apple tree from a pip -no- not really

Apple pips don't come true to type, so it's pure luck what apples you'll get - most likely crabs.

I am doing this, after 12 months mine as 12cm tall.

I was advised to grow 2 different varieties to cross pollinate.  I just like to grow things from seed. Just thought I would give it a try.

Thanks for this, I have a feeling I am biting off more that I can chew!  However I will give it a go and try Pink Lady & Empire.. who knows what will happen?
