How long does it take a honeylocust grown from seed to express its thorns? I understand that I can and probably will end up with thorny trees from seed that I collected from thornless trees. It will determine where I place them if they become thorned or not.

I have seen thorns the first year on the handful I did. None of them lacked thorns the first year.
Not sure if some trees would express them later, but it seems like they start pretty young.
