Growing Apples from seeds in Sub-Saharan Africa step 1

I love apples and I was wondering if I could Manage to grow them here in Senegal. Senegal is very hot and get little to no rain. the challenges are, germinating the seeds and flowering since flowering occurs only after at least 100 chill hours.

so to do so you need

  • apple seeds from apples you ate
  • tissue paper
  • a zip lock bag or a plastic cup that you can stick in a plastic bag and tie if zip lock bags are not available.
  • a fridge

keep the tissue paper moist, check on your seeds regularly so they don’t dry up and die…

I started seeing sprout after 2 weeks in the fridge, but I kept them for 1 month in the fridge.
