How do all these different fruit and plant seeds form?

Where did the first apple seed or orange seed come from? Googling it doesn’t come up with a straightforward answer. I’m assuming that just like the What came first he chicken or egg debate, the seed came first however, where did that first seed originate from?

There wasn’t an identifiable first apple or orange seed. They would have evolved from some preceding plant species slowly over time. So over thousands of generations the preceding plant becomes more and more like an apple or orange tree until eventually it matches what we would recognize as an apple or orange tree but there wasn’t a single point where you could say one generation wasn’t an apple or orange tree and the next was. Think of it like a person aging. Any given day they won’t look any different than the day before but look at two pictures taken 20 years apart and you will see how they aged.
