I planted an apple seed about 3 yrs ago and still have no fruit.

It was an apple from the super market. It was so delicious that I tried my hand at drying the seed out as I do with other fruit I like, but for some reason unknown to me, being an amateur gardener, it won’t produce apples. Can you help me please. David F.

It may never produce apples at all, being from seed. Since there is so much genetic variability, you may get an apple that never fruits, or one that is not edible. These are the most common occurrences.

Apples that you get from the store have been carefully selected from a well known fruiting tree, and grafted to vigorous rootstock. In order to get a good fruiting apple, you will have to find and graft your own from a good fruiting tree, or purchase an already grafted tree.
