    Most fruit trees are clones, not grown from seeds. When a
    tree with a desirable quality is found it is propagated by
    grafting a twig from it unto a generic rooted sapling and
    only the grafted part is allowed to florish by cutting off
    any growth from the root stock. Many other fruiting plants,
    ex. strawberries, are also propagated by transplanting and
    subdividing plant stocks into multiple plants from the
    original plant. Seedless fruit do in fact have seeds but the
    fruit ripens before the seeds mature.
