Apple Tree-to-Be

In your rush to find the perfect green gift, don’t forget to look for things that actually make the world greener. This Apple-Tree-To-Be kit contains clear directions for growing a tree from seed to fruit. The materials are organic across the board—from rice-hull planting pots, to bark made of coconut husks. And its apple offspring are an heirloom variety called Ralls Janets, mom to the ever-popular Fuji. (Potting Shed Creations, $22.50).
