Apple trees have been cherished and cultivated for thousands of years by people of many cultures from every corner of the world. The amazing and generous apple tree has been one of humanity’s favorite trees — growing alongside us throughout most of recorded history. It was perhaps 10,000 years ago that farmers in the mountains of Asia first began growing and “domesticating” apple trees. After thousands of years of cross-pollination, today’s seed-grown apple trees are genetically more related to crabapples than their wild ancestors. Apple trees are members of the rose family, and are generally small- to medium-sized trees which burst with lovely five-petaled white-to-pink blooms each spring and adorn themselves with ripening orbs of growing fruit throughout the summer. This 100% guaranteed germination kit provides everything needed to grow an heirloom apple tree from seed, including seeds, growing medium, mini-greenhouse, and detailed growing instructions.
