Question. Will seeds from a pear obtained at a normal supermarket sprout? My niece desperately wants to grow a pear tree (I realize that it would take several years to do so, and yet more to produce fruit, but she doesn't because she's little), so her papa and I put a few seeds from the pear she was eating into a damp paper towel inside a ziplock baggie. Will this work? Is there a better way to get them to sprout? Will they sprout at all? Do I need to go get a pear from an organic grocery store?
