An apple seedling is created by sowing an apple tree seed in a plant pot filled with soil with a gardening trowel, granting 1.2 Farming experience. Once watered, it will turn into an apple seedling (w), which will grow into an apple sapling. However, while the seedling is growing into a sapling, it is possible to salvage the seed from the plant pot, granting another 1.2 Farming experience. Salvaging the seed can fail, but uncommonly. An apple sapling requires level 27 Farming to plant in a fruit tree patch.
