Should You Try and Grow an Apricot Tree from Seed?
Almost all fruit trees are propagated by grafting cuttings onto root stock and not by planting seeds, and this includes apricot trees. What happens if you plant an apricot seed? It may grow into a tree, but it is unlikely to produce a tree bearing edible, good-quality fruit. Start your apricot trees by grafting scions onto root-stock, or purchase sapling trees at a nursery.
