Straight from the apples on my tree! Offspring might vary from the parent tree but you might get something even better too! Send me a tree mail with your address if interested.

Keith unfortunately the dwarfing is not a genetic trait but is done with the use of a dwarfing rootstock. Any seeds sprouted will not be dwarf or even semi dwarf but rather a full size 25-30 ft tree. The offspring will vary from the parent plant substantially, the chance of getting something as good or better is something like 1 in 1000 or something for apple trees. plums, peaches, and citrus come close to being true from seed with much better odds of getting something good. Domesticated apples can also revert to a wild apple when grown from seed thus giving you a tree with only small fruits. It is kind of you to offer the seeds regardless but I wouldn't include the word dwarf in the listing. Thumbs up

I figured they should know where it's from and that's the name of the cultivar. Regardless it will still be some kind of Apple, if someone has the room it can be still rewarding growing your own tree. My grandma cooks wild crabapple that don't taste good so there again chances are fruit is still edible at least and can be used in some way even if not for eating raw.
