Apple Seeds have sprouted, now what ?

14 years ago


We succesfully sprouted some store bought apple seeds in the fridge and transplanted them into an old egg carton, 11 tiny seedlings are sprouting new leaves each day and growing well.

I have zero experience growing things from seeds.

I know that these little guys will not likely produce fruit, or if they ever do it may not be palatable, that's cool, I just want a tree to grow.

Living in zone 9 what are the chances of an apple tree surviving our heat and sun ?

At what point do I transfer them to a larger pot considering they are in the cup of an egg carton right now ?

At what height would you try putting them in the ground, if that is advisable in my zone ?

Any other tips on keeping these little guys alive are very welcomed. Thank you so very much.
