Q.Can Sprouted Seeds Be Grown?

Zone 61242 | Anonymous added on September 24, 2023 | Answered

Sometimes when I cut open a tomato, orange, etc., the seeds are sprouting. Today, the apple I cut had sprouting seeds. Each of the fruits have been fresh; sometimes store bought, sometimes garden grown. Can you tell me what causes this? Can they be grown?

This article explains it. And yes, you can plant the sprouts, but you may not get an exact replica of the parent plant.
