My friend Brandon and I were sitting on a bench waiting for our friend. We started talking when a sticky situation came up. He told me he had tried this new type of apple called a "Grapple."
"It's a very cool apple that tastes like grapes!" he exclaimed, "I figured since I enjoyed them so much that I could plant the seeds from the grapple. Then, by midsummer, I can have instant grapples fresh from the tree!"
"But Brandon, it's not going to work out," I said.
"I know that you are going to tell me that I just don't have the green thumb," he explained, "but I still have that apple tree in my backyard from last summer, and it's still alive."
"You can try and plant the seeds, but you won't get grapples," I said.
Why?


Answer

Because grapples are not genetically engineered as most people tend to think.
Grapples are simply Fuji apples soaked in Concord grape juice for a few days to a week. If Brandon had planted the seeds, the tree would have produced Fuji apples, leaving him bewildered!
