Apple seeds

Decided I want to try to grow some "Empire" apples on the farm. This is a project with $0 budget but plenty of time. I think I posted before that we want to put some of the farm into trees to lower the tax burden. Most of the land planted in trees would be stuff thats unsuitable for other farming, mostly due to being hilly or inacessable.
So my idea was to get some empire apples and plant the seeds. The problem is that they don't seem to do anything. After a few days I planted some radish seeds in the same pot, the radish seeds are growing, the apple seeds are not.

So, the question is, are apples from the store regularly sterile?
I know where there are a couple trees up around the farm on roadsides and such, should I go pick these "wild"(well, untamed is probably a better word) apples and try their seeds?
