An Overview of Wild Apple
A wild apple is produced by trees grown from seeds, not by named varieties grafted onto rootstocks. All apple trees purchased from the nursery are clones of the tree that produces the desired fruit. Wild apple trees can produce fruits that are delicious to eat fresh, suitable for pies, or almost inedible.

Benefits of Wild Apple
They are rich in plant compounds with health-promoting properties, including phytonutrients, antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, and liver health-promoting activities. It is also rich in water-soluble dietary fibre, which helps lower cholesterol and prevent heart disease.
How to sow and care for Wild Apple
The seeds of wild apples need to be exposed to cold and moist conditions before they germinate. This can be achieved by planting apple seeds outdoors in the fall. Place a layer of moist sand on the bottom of a small container such as B. In a plastic margarine tub, place the apple seeds on moist sand and cover the seeds with moist sand.
Keep the compost mixed soil moistened until the seeds germinate. Additionally, it is important to realize that apples are susceptible to many diseases and pests. As a result, this fruit is rarely cultivated without pesticides. Most apples require pollen from another apple tree to produce fruit. This is called cross-pollination. This second tree needs to be a different variety, but it also blooms at the same time.
