Crabapple Bonsai

An apple tree and one of my favorites. For sale.

In the wild, apples grow quite readily from seeds. Apple trees are an example of "extreme heterozygotes", in that rather than inheriting DNA from their parents to create a new apple with those characteristics, they are instead different from their parents, sometimes radically. This is why there are more than 7,500 known cultivars of apples.
