In recent days, as snow blankets the landscape and temperatures continue to drop, thoughts of spring may seem distant. Most vegetable gardens and flower beds now lie dormant, creating a somewhat gloomy scene across much of the peninsula. Winter’s chill is settling in, but the idea of sowing the first seeds of spring is still far off. So, why not embark on a simple experiment that, within minutes, allows you to witness the miracle of new life emerging? Let’s explore how to do just that.


We’ve all heard the saying, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away.” While one apple alone may not suffice, consuming at least two daily is recommended. However, for the experiment we’re about to undertake, even less will do. Apples happen to be one of the most straightforward fruits to use in creative experiments. After all, it can take many years for an apple tree to bear fruit, but it takes only a few days to witness a seed germinate.

Consuming at least two apples a day is recommended

The Incredible Method for Cultivating an Apple Seedling

After enjoying your apple, instead of discarding the remains in the organic waste bin, consider saving a few seeds. To embark on this simple operation, you’ll need a piece of absorbent paper, an airtight container, and a water sprayer.


This is an ideal activity to do at home with children or grandchildren, introducing them to the wonder of life, which often captivates them. In just a few minutes, you can amaze them, and within a week, you’ll have a fascinating result.

Steps to Grow an Apple Seedling from a Single Seed

Start by carefully removing and saving the black seeds. Thoroughly wash and dry them before placing them in an airtight container lined with a piece of absorbent paper at the bottom. Prior to placing the seeds, give them a light spritz of water to make them slightly moist.

Next, moisten another piece of absorbent paper and use it to cover the seeds. Close the container and put it in the refrigerator – this is the secret. Allow the seeds to germinate in a cool place, such as the egg compartment.

In just 10 days, you will witness small roots emerging from the seeds. You can then plant them in a pot filled with well-draining soil, creating a small hole for them. Within a few days, the first leaves will begin to appear.

It’s crucial not to touch the seeds or, more importantly, the delicate roots with your hands. Instead, use tweezers to avoid any potential damage from heat.



Finally, keep the pot in a well-lit location, but not in direct sunlight. Use a spray bottle to keep the soil consistently moist to facilitate seedling growth. In less than three weeks, you’ll see the remarkable results of your attention and care.

Naturally, it will take time for the seedling to grow and strengthen, preparing it to receive the graft that will enable it to bear fruit. Storing the seeds in an airtight container with absorbent paper in the refrigerator is the astonishing trick for nurturing a new apple seedling, providing a delightful way to engage and entertain our children.
