I love fireside apples. Will trees grow from the apple seed in the fruit I eat? If yes, what are general directions? Will I need more than one tree for pollination? How much will it grow in a year? when will it produce fruit?

Thank you for the question. If you plant an apple seed and it germinates and grows, you will have some sort of apple tree. However, the seed will not produce the same type of apple you desire. Named varieties of apples like Honeycrisp are produced through a form of splicing/cloning.
