An Apple A Day

A gift fit for Johnny Appleseed, this Apple Tree To Be kit is a memorable and creative gift that will keep on giving. This kit contains seeds harvested from Ralls Janet heirloom apples. Apples are medium to large with thin greenish-yellow skin covered with dark pink and red stripes. Bite into one, and you'll experience a fine-grained, crisp and juicy taste. These apples ripen in October and are excellent keepers. An aluminum tag is provided for a personalized inscription to be placed on the tree. This kit contains everything you need to start your very own orchard. Made in the USA.

Unfortunately, this item cannot ship outside of the United States at this time.

Made from
aluminum, soil, planting seeds, burlap
Measurements
pot: 4" H x 2.75" Diameter
Notes
Recommended to start in cold weather environment for the first 2 - 3 months. Plant it in its permanent location the following spring, allowing room to grow. Your apple tree prefers a deep, rich, slightly acidic and well-drained soil in a mostly sunny spot. Prune for shape while the tree is dormant in winter. You can contact your local agricultural extension for tips on pruning apple trees in your area. Rabbits and deer love apple seedlings, so be sure to protect the seedling until it is strong enough to withstand the attention.

Grown apple trees take 10-15 years before flowering and fruiting occurs.

    Comments about APPLE TREE TO BE KIT:

    My nephew & his wife just moved into their first home. They both want to stay in this home forever, & when they opened this Apple-Tree-To-Be housewarming gift, they were just thrilled because as they said, "We want to grow with this apple tree and one day enjoy it's fruit." The contents were wrapped beautifully. We were all impressed!

                    I purchased this as a wedding gift for my friend who was getting married in a Community Garden. It was a really pretty package and perfect for a fall wedding theme.

                    Delivery was prompt. It better be- I paid extra for rush shipping!!

                            You can't grow apples from seed

                            This is a wonderful idea and I love the packaging however, you can't grow apples from seed. The chances of the seed turning into a viable apple tree is very unlikely and it will never be true to fruit, meaning that if (BIG IF) the tree produces apples they won't be like the apples that the seeds came from. If you want to give someone the gift of growing fruit you need to buy them a grafted fruit tree.
