Can a pear tree be grown from the seed of a pear? I am in Zone 6b and i have the seeds sitting on the window sill. If i nick them and soak them for a few hours then plant, will they actually grow a tree with pears on it? Also, has anyone grown a tea tree from seed? I've read that we have the right conditions here so it might be worth trying - just didn't know if anyone had tried this. If i decide to grow grapes (there are vineyards here so i know they will grow), what kind do i grow? Again - this is all for homestead purposes.
