Can you have just one apple tree?
One tree is not enough
To set fruit, the vast majority of apple trees require a different variety grown nearby for pollination. While some apple varieties are self-pollinating, even they produce more fruit with another variety nearby.
Are any apple trees self-pollinating?
While some varieties of apple are able to fertilize themselves (trees described as ‘self-fertile’), others require pollen from another tree to do the job – a process known as cross-pollination.
Which apple trees cross pollinate?
Winter Banana (spur type) and Golden Delicious (spur type) are two good examples of pollinating cross varieties of apple. Closely related cultivars such as McIntosh, Early McIntosh, Cortland, and Macoun do not cross pollinate well with each other and spur types do not pollinate the parent.
