Let's get a little more diverse! We are happy to see a growing interest in folks growing seedlings! They are an excellent way to both increase biodiversity for nature , and also your palate! Seedling fruits may share some characteristics of their mother plant, however there will be natural variation creating a unique plant with every seed, as unique as the differences between you and me. Remember when planting seedlings, it's best to plant a few (2-3) for pollination. They typically take longer to come into bearing compared to grafted stock too. Some species (eg. Prunus) stay fairly close to their mother tree, while others (eg. Malus) will be incredibly diverse.
