Steven recently posted a new video updating us on the progress of his seedling apple tree – the first one to fruit – which is bearing good apples, in complete defiance of conventional “wisdom.”
I am a vigorous advocate of growing fruit trees from seed and Steven provided the inspiration for my own apple-growing.
Though I have to leave behind my Florida apple orchard (ouch!) in order to move to paradise, I am growing apple trees from seed again. Just because.
Though we lost some of them to cutworms or something, we still have some growing nicely in pots. When we find our new homestead, I hope to get scion wood from the US to experiment with here in the tropics.
Why not? If Steven can grow good apples from seed, maybe I’ll be able to grow good apples in the tropics!
