Apple Trees

Remember my post the perfect apples (if not, go read it)? Well, we're trying to plant some apple seeds from one of those wonderful apples! We folded them in a moist paper towel and put that in a plastic Zip-Loc baggy. Then we waited until the seeds were germinated... now what? We looked it up and all the sites said to plant the seeds outside, but we don't want to do that because it will take many years to grow, and we'll probably be out of this house by then! We want to grow the seeds in a pot until it can't possibly stay in one any longer... is that possible? We also read that the fruit of a younger apple tree won't be at all like the fruit of its parent... so we don't really know what to do... We'll probably just wing it... I'll post ten years from now and tell you how it went.
