Good luck with the apple growing project! I think you will get something, but maybe not fruiting trees -- my understanding is the same as John's, that growing apples from seed is hit or miss. On our land here in Michigan, we have "wild" (feral) apple trees and perhaps 1/3 to 1/2 bear fruit.

Wonderful photos!


Thanks Katie. I know it's unlikely. But apparently "Monty's Surprise" happened exactly that way, so it's not impossible, just improbable! An apple grower in Piopio suggested that I try to get a graft from the tree when I'm next in Nelson.
