that if you take all the pips from an average apple, say, 10, plant them all and they all germinate they will all be different apples . None will be like the parent plant and not even like each other !!
To grow a copy apple (copy apple !!!) from an apple it must be grafted and now I know how to graft an apple .
The other fascinatin' fact is that the fresh apples you buy fresh in your trusted fresh supermarket wot sells fresh fruit may very well be, and probably is, 12 months old - Who Knew ?!?!?!?!
Reason is that oxygen is 'aging' so They fill the storage container with nitrogen instead and then fruit doesn't age, it slows down like hibernation. It'll keep for an unforgiveable length of time .
This is the reason why we are able to buy English apples all year round.
