Just go collect some deer frase that has some seeds in it. The actual scarifying of the seed also gets the germination going.
Then as the ground is thawing in spring use a ice chisel and sprinkle a little deer droppings in every hole and back-heel to close

Take notice if you have a south facing hill where the deer bed in the mid winter...all the little apple trees started...their hoofs have planted them

X2. They need stratification, which is like 3 months of cold temps. You guys should know that apple trees dont bear true for the seeds. This means you need to do a graft if you found an apple tree you like, just saying.

Hence I originally said above^^^ " I don't care if they don't grow true to form "
Just saying...we knew.

I doesn't matter to deer

Ok ice chisel was a poor word to use since everyone south of us wonder what they are used for.

now maybe a rock pry bar is the accepted term....
drive shafts from Model T are perfect since they already have that knob on the end

330 see his lawyer and get it inserted into his will.....we know after his deer hunting the eye sight is going on 160

I know this isn't from seed, but the fastest way to start apple trees is to trim new growth from the branches of the desired tree. You want a piece about 5" to 8" inches long with a couple buds on it. Cut the end at a slight angle and using the edge of a knife lightly remove the outer layer of the young bark about an inch up from the bottom. Not down to the wood, just the young outer bark. set the end of the branch that you are going to plant in tap water for an hour, I've left them up to a day before.

Dip the damp end in rooting hormone, you can also you banana peels. tap off the excess rooting hormone and plant in potting soil. we used fine peat moss mixed with compost. keep the soil moist not wet. check for root growth in about a month. Roots should be at least a 1/4" long.

you can keep it inside all winter the first year as long as it warm and get lots of sunlight. We did hundreds of trees this way every year. we usually had about a 10% loss after the first year.

The link below is similar to how we did it.

Grow apple trees from a branch.
