Are there any sources of Antonovka seed that doesn't have the prerequisite of reading/writing/speaking Russian?

There is an apple tree by my grandmother's house in Alden, Michigan (zone 4 or 5 I think.)  I'm sure that tree is well over 100 years old.  Still produces apples, some years more than others.  Some summers you have to be careful walking though the yard that you don't step on an apple and twist an ankle.  That poor tree has been partly hollow since I was a kid.  Perhaps next summer I should figure out a cover to keep rain/snow out of the hollow and keep the tree healthier for longer.  The apples don't compare that well to modern varieties for eating out of hand but I'm sure they are fine for baking/preserving if anyone were to bother.  Normally the deer get lots of treats though.

I have been throwing plum pits and apple seeds in pots with pre used ground coconut bark and have lots of seedlings from honeycrisp, transparent and gala apples and I too will be doing a lot more to see how this experiment works . It was just too expensive to buy grafted stock and have 90% lost to voles so I figured a few hundred started from seed might yield something eventually ?
