How long does it take for an apple to grow from a seed?
If you think you have enough room in your yard for this tree, great! You should also keep in mind that trees planted from seeds could take 8 to 10 years to produce fruit, while a transplanted sapling will produce fruit in a much faster time frame.
Acorns grow roots first, long before they grow shoots. Acorns will germinate 2-4 weeks after planting (if they haven't already done so in the refrigerator!) Roots will be substantial and some shoots will appear 8-10 weeks after planting.
- Trees grow taller when new cells are produced at the tips of twigs, causing the twigs to grow longer. Tree trunks and branches grow thicker as new cells are added beneath the bark. These cells make up vessels, called xylem and phloem, that carry water and food throughout the tree.
- Most apples are grown from grafted trees and will not come true from seed. The seeds might germinate, and they could develop into productive trees, but the fruit might not be similar to the fruit you purchased. Plant them an inch deep in a pot containing potting soil or seed germinating mix. Moisten the soil.
- Watch for germination one to two weeks after daytime temperatures stay reliably above 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Move the pots to a partially shaded garden bench with good air circulation once the seeds sprout.
Some trees are slow growers (20-30 years to reach full size) and some are fast (10-15 years). Red maple (Acer rubrum) is a moderately fast grower; given good growing conditions, it should put on 1-2 feet of growth per year once established.
- Hybrid Poplar: One of the most recommended fast growing shade trees is the hybrid poplar, which can grow up to 8 feet per year, and mature at about 40' to 50' high.
- The meristem is a growing point for other plant parts like buds and flowers, as well as leaves, Kalcsits said. While the meristem tells leaves to grow, sometimes trees get a signal to stop growing, too. As the days get shorter and colder, some trees' cells will start to act like scissors.
- For any given tree this can work out to about 3 attempts per minute, but a tree will usually not grow until nearly 30 minutes have elapsed since planting. When the tree attempts to grow it first checks that it has enough light, then chooses either to spawn as a Large Tree or a Small Tree.
If small seeds and big seeds are planted, then the bigger seeds will make bigger plants. From the expirement and observations, the biggest seed does not grow the biggest plant. The smallest seed, the mustard seed ended up growing the biggest plant and the biggest seed, the sunflower seed was medium to all three.

- Let's break the fertilization process down into four generalized steps.
- Step 1: Pollination. In general, male gametes are contained in pollen, which is carried by wind, water, or wildlife (both insects and animals) to reach female gametes.
- Step 2: Germination.
- Step 3: Penetration of the Ovule.
- Step 4: Fertilization.
- The fertilized ovule becomes the seed, and the ovary becomes the fruit. Petals are also important parts of the flower, because they help attract pollinators such as bees, butterflies and bats. You can also see tiny green leaf-like parts called sepals at the base of the flower.
