I Grew Fruit Trees from Store Bought Fruits and this is what happened – Full Tutorial

I Grew Fruit Trees from Store Bought Fruits and this is what happened – Full Tutorial

Today I’ll be taking you through the whole process of how I grew fruit trees from store bought fruit, including growing some from seed to harvest. I share updates along the way to show you what happened with each type of fruit tree. We’ll also go over some growing requirements to help you get started with learning how to grow different plants, vines and trees in your garden.
I’ve selected 7 store-bought fruits to grow with each one suiting a slightly different climate, so you should find one in here that you can grow in your garden wherever you live in the world.
We’ll be growing pomegranates from seeds to fruit, as well as growing goji berry plants (wolf berries), dragon fruit, peanuts, tamarillo, papaya and kiwifruit (kiwi).
Experimenting with this kind of thing gives you more that just a plant or fruit; it also helps you to learn skills of how to grow different trees from seed, care for plants with different requirements and it can lead to many other skills or passions down the track, like grafting, growing you own food and many other interests. At least it did for me!
I hope you find this guide helpful and it inspires you to get out there and grow something πŸ™‚

Note that these are different to my one (as the one I have is only available in NZ). Plenty of different options to choose from on this link.
I just have mats with a set temperature, so no need to get one with a thermostat controller, unless you want to πŸ™‚

    could you make a collection with plants than can be grown indoors ? please ? thank you kindly.

  2. Gseric47 on June 7, 2022 at 9:17 pm

    I still remember growing little acorn plants as a kid and later trying to grow orange and lemon seeds with a napkin in a bag, later planting/placing them into a cement block. Everything was going completely fine until we went on vacation. I told my friends to do everything they could to take care of my plants while I was gone since they were all a few houses away from us, but they simply forgot. It took me days to recover from losing them all πŸ™

  3. Brock Reynolds on June 7, 2022 at 9:19 pm

    I got suckered into buying a Gogi berry bush. The most VILE tasting fruit God has ever put on this earth. Even worse than a puckery unripe persimmon. too bad, because the fruit was beautiful, it looks like glistening, red earrings hanging from the branches.

  4. Jeremy Miller on June 7, 2022 at 9:22 pm

    Dig it. That’s what we been doing with store veggies.

    Try brawndo instead of water from a toilet. It’s got what plants crave

  14. Jesse Murray on June 7, 2022 at 9:35 pm

    People can have whatever opinion about cannabis they wish. However. Finding seeds in my stash when I was younger fueled my interest in gardening and learning as much as I can about plants.
    Im at 40 degrees north in the midwest of USA so many of these fruits wouldnt be suited for our winters. I did grow Papaya and when I lived in Florida though. I left before it fully matured though. I had no idea they were dioecious. This dude is cool

    OMG ! Your content is amazing ! I was on here looking to see if/how I can grow raspberries from store bought fruit. And your channel popped up. I’m 57 and have been gardening since I was about eight years old. I’ve been growing stuff from store bought fruit for many years but I’m looking to try new stuff. The goji berries look like a good idea. They are healthy, cold tolerant and my wife is from Indonesia. She loves this kind of fruit. I grow other stuff for her from seeds I got from store bought fruit and vegetables. Asian pear tree, Kaffir lime tree, kemangi plants,(kemangi seeds sent from Indonesia), mandarin Orange, key lime and bitter melon. I also grow a lot of hot chili peppers for her, to make hot chili oil. And I grow some of the stuff we use for juicing. Kale, spinach, carrots….. Anyway, I just hit like and subscribe. This video is right up my alley ! Please keep it up. Thanks !πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ•ŠοΈπŸ™πŸ’Ÿfrom Philadelphia PA USA.

    How about cashews?

  24. Inachu Ikimasho on June 7, 2022 at 9:43 pm

    I could see a future within 40 years that it will be illegal to plant seeds from fruit you buy.

  25. TheFooledGhost on June 7, 2022 at 9:44 pm

    Giving the state of the world today, viewers of your videos will be alright if a food shortage hits.

  26. Geebop Baluba on June 7, 2022 at 9:44 pm

    I have a wisteria I planted probably 20 years ago and it has never flowered so what do you think may be wrong?

  27. Daniel's Corner on June 7, 2022 at 9:47 pm

    I’m in the process of growing Lemon Trees from Seeds I got from the lemons I get with my sweet tea when I eat out, several have sprouted, a few seeds turned black in the ziploc bag when I was doing the wrap the seeds in a damp paper towel inside a ziploc bag to get them to germinate trick. Just transferred another seed from the ziploc to soil last night.

  28. Cody W on June 7, 2022 at 9:47 pm

    ive never seen a pomegranate. that looks alien to me

  29. Cherry Schouest on June 7, 2022 at 9:49 pm

    Great information !

  30. turtlefromrealty on June 7, 2022 at 9:49 pm

    you could try and grow wistaria there a vine plant that grow in America china and japan, Japanese wistaria grow in a different way then American and Chinese wistara but there still a vine plant

  31. Tobyn Cummins on June 7, 2022 at 9:49 pm

    Finally can I stop wasting my time on useless YouTube videos and start learning from videos like this one!

  32. Pete's Dog Treats on June 7, 2022 at 9:51 pm

    Awesome video, thanks for the info. Here in the USA many people take the tops off of pineapples and plant them. You can literally just twist off the top and put it in water until you see roots and then put it in dirt for a new pineapple. πŸ˜ƒ

  33. Twighhhh on June 7, 2022 at 9:53 pm

    2:39 out of curiosity, what’s your definition of β€œcold” ,like what degree Fahrenheit (I dont know is that’s how you spell that) if cold is around -10 to -30 possibly -40, would you still be able to grow that berry?

  34. Simple nitro OG 2.5 on June 7, 2022 at 9:53 pm

    Now you have infinite fruits and nuts!

  35. Elizabeth G on June 7, 2022 at 9:53 pm

    Pineapples are really easy to do too! Just cut 1-2" from the top and plant it. They’re great because they grow almost year-round!

  36. Fahri Yain on June 7, 2022 at 9:54 pm

    try to grow date seeds

  37. wjeurs on June 7, 2022 at 9:55 pm

    at your location; what’s a warm summer and cold winter? preferably expressed in Β°C πŸ˜‚.

    I want to see if it’d be possible in my location

  38. Matt on June 7, 2022 at 9:58 pm

    Stopped at pomegranate because it and as well as most fruits are never true to type or true to seed, meaning you need to grow from cuttings. Anyone trying this will be disappointed when they find the fruits don’t taste like they’re supposed to taste. Good luck

  39. BlueSheep916 on June 7, 2022 at 9:59 pm

    damn I really want to grow stuff but there is no good soil around here, just some bad dirt
