    It normally takes 6-10 years from being planted for a new apple tree to produce fruit.

    Most apple trees from garden centres are grafts of mature fruiting branches on to 3 year old seedlings.  Sometimes, if you buy in the autumn, they will be carrying fruit.  If you plant an apple seed, it can take as long as 20 years before it fruits.

    Depending on the root stock the apple wood  is  grafted onto, you  will get some  fruit in 3 years, from 5  years on it will produce alot of fruit. Some of the older varieties are slower to produce fruit. Ask  your  nursery man and  he  will  make a reccomendation to your specifications. Never plant an apple seed.
