This depends on if the apple was on its own rootstock, or grafted to another.

If it was grown from its own rootstock (highly unlikely) then the cutting will produce similar fruit.

If this was grafted, then anything that comes up from the roots will be a different tree than the top was. This means that the fruit will not be edible, or may not even fruit at all.

Should you choose to take the chance with the cuttings, this article will help you to do so: [1]
