Apple Seeds, Antonovka

(Malus pumila 'Antonovka') Can be hardy up to Zone 1!

This wonderful Russian apple cultivar can withstand some of the coldest north American winters, and is popular as a root stock for grafting other cultivars. Sometimes called 'The People's Apple';  the trees grow true from seed and produce a low sugar, late fruiting apple that is great for pies and cider!

This is a great rootstock apple tree with fruit that is ideal for cooking.

*Many modern apple varieties do not grow true-to-type from seed, but Antonovka Apples DO! They are an old, open pollinated variety that will produce the same kind of apple from which the seeds came.

GROWING INSTRUCTIONS

- Soak Seeds 24 hrs. Follow with 90 days cold, moist stratification. For more information on stratification, check out our article "How To Start Your Tree Seeds".

*If you are doing the cold period in your fridge, please check on your seeds. 90 days is an estimate & they may sprout sooner.*

- Plant stratified seeds in pots or a nursery bed using standard potting soil. Heat mats are NOT required & can hinder germination!

- Protect young tree seedlings from slugs, cutworms & rodents. Slugs especially can eat primary leaves as soon as they come up, so be vigilant!
