How drought tolerant are apple trees?
Yes I know it's dumb but I planted apple seeds. I cut into a Fuji apple this spring(?) and there were some big fat seeds in it that were already sprouting and I happened to have a container of potting soil sitting on my kitchen counter so now I have five little apple trees that have been sitting on my patio in pots all summer.
Do you think they could eventually handle root competition from other trees if I planted them along the south side of a tree line that's next to our hayfield? I know it's not likely that they would produce good quality apples but maybe apples for wildlife such as deer. Bad idea?
