The Q&A Archives: Apple Tree - Reborn

Question: Hi there,
I had an apple tree that died years ago. Not sure what kind, I adopted it with the house. The stump has since rotted away. However, the drip system kept watering the area and the tree started to sprout about a year ago. The suckers have now grown to 5 feet and are blossoming. Can I prune this apple "bush" back into a tree? Will it produce fruit again? Any other helpful suggestions?
