Most of our varieties cross-pollinate each other with the following exceptions:
+ - indicates SELF-FRUITFUL variety requiring no other tree as a pollinator. Although, most self-fruitful varieties will produce better with another apple variety nearby.
*** - indicates this apple is a Triploid. Triploids are considered pollen sterile because they cannot pollinate other varieties. Plant with 2 varieties that are able to cross-pollinate each other OR if limited on space plant your Triploid apple tree with a self-fruitful.
We are happy to provide more info on apple pollination or give confirmation of cross-pollination when you order!
