Apple Tree Planting Challenge!

Apple Tree Planting Challenge!

I was and still busy gardening at our yard, searching for fruit bearing trees to plant and for shading purposes also. While I was peeling the apple for my daughter to eat, I was wondering why I haven’t seen apple trees grow in our place or in the entire Philippines. My husband told me that it was because of dormancy period that it needs 45 degrees temperature or below in order seeds to sprout. Since we only have rainy and sunny climate here in the Philipiines, so it’s not possible to plant apple tree.

But then again if the apple seeds need to grow in a winter climate, what about the streetwise thought of putting it in can cover with sawdust and put the can in the fridge for three months, will the apple seed sprout?mmm.. Then after that, plant it in our yard and when it’s fully mature to bear fruits, we’ll just have to tear off its leaves manually. Research shows that if that happen apple tends to bear fruits in order to reproduce, afraid of extinction.

Learning is acquired through experience I’ll just update my blog about our apple tree planting challenge. There’s no harm in trying. 🙂
