Answer: You may be able to grow an apple tree by planting apple seeds, yes. However, most of the apple trees we grow for fruit are hybrids. This means the tree you grow from a seed will not match the parent tree you took the seed from. Also, most apple trees are grafted onto strong rootstocks, some of which control the mature size of the tree as well. If you want to have a good quality bearing apple tree it would be better to plant a name variety tree with predictable quality fruit, disease resistance and in a size range that fits the space. Otherwise you may wait five years to get your first apple from the tree and discover it is more like a crabapple than something you would want to eat. That would be sad.
