The popularity of fruit-bearing trees among homeowners makes perfect sense. They offer all the beauty, shade and oxygen of any other tree, plus a food source for your family. Apple trees are particularly favored for their hardy nature. The apples we get from the grocery store are hybrids. This means planting the seeds of an apple will not result in a tree bearing fruit tasting the same, or even similar, in some cases. In fact, the chances of a seed germinating, growing to full size and producing edible apples is rather slim. The chance remains, however, so it's worth a try.
Remove seeds from the apples and leave them in a cool, dry place until dry on the outside.
Place the individual seeds in a potting tray, buried in soil.
Water the seeds and watch for them to sprout. Once they do, make sure to put them near a window where they will get ample light. Continue to water them, maintaining moist but well drained soil.
Plant the seedlings in your yard once they have have developed several leaf levels.
Fertilize lightly and water the seedlings as they continue to grow. Follow fertilizing instructions on the box. After about six years or so, the tree should begin to bear fruit.
