How do I plant an apple seed that has germinated?

The seeds must be planted outdoors in a prepared soil or in a container. Make sure to use a high-quality potting mix. Apple seeds thrive in soil that has a neutral pH. The soil should be poured into the pots. Make sure the soil is at least one-two times the size of the seed.

The other question is, how long does an apple tree take to grow from seed?

Six to 10 Years

Why don't my apple seeds germinate properly? They never germinate, so it is possible that the seeds are either sterile or infertile. Your apple seeds won't germinate if you take the seeds out of an apple. The seeds require a drying period, followed by a stratification.

Another question that might be asked is, "How do you plant seeds once they have sprouted?"

Planting Sprouts

  1. A quality soil-less potting mixture can be used to fill a seed pot.
  2. You should water the soil until it is evenly moist.
  3. In the middle of the pot, poke a hole about 1/2 inch deep in the soil.
  4. If the seed has shed its seed coat, grab the split seed coat attached to the plant and the leaves.

Are you able to plant apples seeds using store-bought apples?

These trees can be grown from store-bought apple seeds. New Apple varieties are primarily derived from chance seedlings, such as those grown from store- purchased' Seeds. After being started from seed, the trees can bear fruits for six to ten years. Mid-November is the best time to plant apple seeds.
