Approximately 6 years ago I planted an apple pip and itís grown into a tree and is 5 foot tall now. It hasnít produced any fruit to date. I was wondering if anyone has done this theirselves and what the outcome was thanks

Thanks for the advice all, I have two other apple trees about a foot high from pips too, so it will be interesting to see them grow. Maybe I'll be supplying supermarkets with jam in the future!

Apples need an compatible pollinator .Some are self pollinating.Best advice wait and see

A relative of mine has a large crab apple tree that overhangs the garden they are very small and very bitter, best for jam making

Thanks for the infor I don't expect they'll be as nice as the Gala apple they came from. I think crab apples are edible but you are not to eat the core or the seeds.

Years ago my next-door neighbours grew an apple tree from a pip (actually from the core thrown down the garden by one of the children) it grew to a good height but only produced crab apples, I think it may take between six and ten years for your apple tree to fruit and it will be a guess as to what apples it will produce
