    I'm just sitting here with a sack of tart green apples. Granny Smith I'm sure.
    Nothing better than a sour apple.

    Just want to remind everybody that honey crisps were abandoned and forgotten about for 20 years until a botany student was like "what's this tree over here? Wow that tastes great, how come the university never did anything with this strain?"

    Yours is a very spastic post, OP.
    Almost every single thing you eat is a domesticated plant or animal that humans have been selectively breeding for thousands of years, and which bears frick-all resemblance to its wild ancestors.
    This very much includes your grandmother's heirloom apples.
    Carrots weren't originally orange, by the way. You should look that up.
    The difficulty with growing fruit trees from seed is that their roots are susceptible to many different pests and diseases. Almost all commercially grown fruit trees are grafted onto rootstock that is highly resistant to pests and diseases. This includes the trees for huge commercial orchards, and the trees you can buy at your local hardware store or garden centre.
    You can absolutely grow fruit trees from seed. Just don't expect them to give lots of good fruit. They'll be too busy just trying to survive against nematodes and all kinds of other shit.

      Best post. I love how sour and crunchy Granny Smith's are. No other variety comes close. I am willing to kill for this.

        Why would rightoids love corpos when every corpo is essentially Inbev pulling that Bud Light shit on its customers? I just feel bad for the low information idiots who swapped their Bud Light for Modelo, when Bud Light and Modelo are both made by the same group of corporate buttholes.

    Red deliciouses are shit and specifically bred for looks. Every apple in Malus Domestica is man made.

    Red Deliciouses are horseshit apples popular only because of intense marketing and their superior transportability to other older strains of apple. 14,000 different varieties of apple used to be sold in the US, but Corporate Apple wanted standardization, and Red Delicious was the face of that standardization.

    The principle difference between a Honey Crisp and one of it's ancestor strains like a Reinette Franche or Duchess of Oldenburg is the transportability requirement created by the fact that most of the country gets their food from grocery stores instead of farm stands. Besides, the patent expired 15 years ago, you're free to grow and sell your own Honeycrisps if you'd like.

      Interesting how red delicious apples taste 6,000,000x better than honeyshits.

        Almost no one agrees with you. The one guy I know who prefers red delicious is a deranged maniac with one eye who's currently fighting sexual assault charges.
        Not liking Honeycrisp is fine (many people don't prefer that mouth feel or the tartness), but preferring Corporate Apple 1.0 is bizarre behavior. The shittyness of Red Delicious is responsible for a huge portion of the marketshare for oranges in the US.
        Go try some other apples.

        Is your tongue broken? RDs are mealy and bland, like eating wet styrofoam. HCs are crisp, moist, and sweet with a good texture to them.

        The only thing the name Red Delicious has in common with the apple is the color.

    it IS bullshit that you can't just plant an apple seed to grow your own from grocery produce, they're genetic mutants and they specifically spray shit on fruit/veg so you can't grow anything from seed. It's also bullshit that heirloom apples are more and more rare, my grandmother told me that almost every house used to have an apple tree. She had some kind of pie making variety in hers that wasn't very good to eat on its own but was banger in deserts. It got me super into rarer heirloom fruit varieties.

      Apples have been polyploid monstrosities that don't breed true to seed for 7500 years. You can either plant a thousand apples, cull the 500 trees that don't make good fruit, and have 500 slightly different varieties of apples, or you can use cuttings to propagate, like humans have been doing since ~5000 BCE

      It's the nature of many plants.

      You haven't grown apples from seed unless you were trying to create a new variety of apples since before Europeans came to America. Apples are polyploid, they have never bred true for seed. You use seed to grow rootstock and then graft a shoot from a tree you know grows good apples onto that rootstock. But yeah, the loss of cultivars of the apple has been catastrophic over the last 120 years or so. There used to be tens of thousands of recognized cultivars of apples grown in the US, now there's maybe 3000 left, and most of those are not available commercially.
