I tried to plant something before. Turns out shoving an apple in dirt doesn't do much...

Well my good friend here is why: your typical apple is grown from both an apple tree(the trunk and upwards) and another tree's root system that has been grafted onto it to make it more stable(not necessarily another applpe tree) because in most cases the type of apples you eat if not all of them have terrible genetic weakness and deficiencies. Another reason is that even if you grow an apple from the seeds it's likely you won't even get anything remotely similar to the apple you grew from. Apples are a lot like dogs in that they have super diverse genetic phenotypes and when any 2 apples mix it's likely to come out much like a mutt. In fact most of the apples you eat are probably grown from cuttings of other apple trees instead of actually being grown from seed :D
