Tasting somewhat like a Golden Delicious, because they're related, these apples are excellent for both eating and baking. Originally developed in New Zealand, this apple is now grown extensively in the United States since its introduction in the 1970s and is now the second most popular apple in the world. Important, you will not grow identical apples to these from these seeds, as fruits produced will vary greatly, but you may get a lovely new cultivar as new varieties are produced by growing large numbers of seedlings and choosing the best!
These seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and cold-stored for several months. They should be sown into well-drained, sandy compost at any time of the year, and covered to their own depth with sand or grit. No artificial heat is needed; the seed tray is best left in a cool spot outside and kept moist. Seeds germinate very slowly indeed in the spring after a chilling in the cold compost, regardless of when they are sown. Some seeds may take more than a year to germinate.
