Are there any special considerations when trying to
germinate an apple seed from a fresh apple? Do the seeds have to be
dried a certain length of time? What is the normal germination
time? Our 1st graders plan to plant apple seeds hoping to sprout an
apple tree so I'd like enough info. to make this a successful
experience. I'd also like to know an estimate of the time it might take
for the tree to produce fruit. Thanks!
