  Fruit Trees: Apples                                              
     
 

All apples benefit from cross-pollination with another apple variety, even when they are described as partially self-fruitful. For each apple variety we list, we include a few, but not all, of the suggested cross-pollinators.

The apple cultivars that are unable to pollinate any other apples are Gravenstein, King, Jonagold and Red Gravenstein. Apples are grafted on semi-dwarf MM106 rootstock, except for dwarf trees, which are grafted on mini-dwarf M27 rootstock.
