My question is if it is possible to start fruit trees from seed and will they bear fruit?

Fruit will grow from seed, but many times it won't be identical in taste, size, or color as the parent. Many new fruits like apple varieties some did come from seed grown plants, it's a surprise so you can grow them and see the results.

Do the seeds need to be soaked or striated before planting? And what type of soil to start them in? Thank You!

I just planted them outside in pots in seed starting mix and kept watered and they sprout easily then when they get about a foot tall (or slightly earlier) seperate each seedling in its own pot.
