Apple trees started from seeds--need for grafting ?
I've germinated a number of Granny Smith and Gala seeds just as a fun experiment. I know it will be years before they have a chance to bear fruit but I have a small area of my property where I want to plant 2-3 of each. I've been told that unless I graft some other variety to them I'll just end up with crabapples. I thought that since I have more than one type that would be adequate for pollination and full size fruit should develop even if the fruit turns out to be less than desirable. Thank you for any clarification/help.
