To be upfront, it is very challenging to grow apples from seeds and what you'll get probably won't be true to its parent nor a strong tree. Today, most trees are grown from grafting (nurseries attach part of one tree to another recommended for growing fruit). If you do wish to try it, just know that 1 in 10 may take, at best, so it's a lot of experimenting! After you save your apple seeds, dry them, put them in the refrigerator for a few months as apple seeds must be chilled, and then sow outdoors in the spring (April) in a warm place. This will work better than trying to grow indoors in a pot. See more:
