The apple tree (Malus domestica ) is a close relative of the pear, quince and the rose. It is a small to medium-sized tree that thrives in deep, loamy soils in cool, temperate regions.Planting a seed from an apple you've eaten may not produce a tree with the same qualities of the parent, but it's a fun project and easy to do. If successful, you will have apples in six to 10 years.
Allow the seeds to dry completely after you remove them from the apple.
Insert the seeds into damp peat moss. Make sure they are completely surrounded by the moss. Place the moss in the plastic bag, seal it and place it in the refrigerator for 90 days.
Pour equal parts of seed starting mix and peat moss into the planting pot, and water it until the water drains from the bottom. Poke small holes in the soil for the seeds. When planted, the seeds should be barely covered with soil.
Place the seeds in the hole, and cover them lightly with soil.
Place the pots in a shady location, and keep the soil moist until the apple seed germinates. Once it does, move the pot gradually into sunnier locations until the seedling is in full sun.
