POLLINATION

Most of the offered varieties cross-pollinate each other with the following exception:

 

*** - Indicates the variety is a triploid. Triploids are considered pollen sterile meaning they cannot pollinate other varieties. Plant a triploid apple with 2 other varieties that can cross-pollinate each other as well as the tripod variety.

I am happy to provide more info on apple pollination or give confirmation of cross-pollination when you order!
