Question & Answer
Hi,I committed to buy Tropic Anna because I saw from this article: http://www.greengardener.com.au/apples/ that it can cross pollinate the granny smith. So I also ordered the granny smith. Are you sure the tropical anna cannot cross pollinate with the granny smith? Can you please verify the claim of the article by greengardener - it's not true? From: KELLYVILLE NSW
Hi Angelita, Tropical Anna isnt the best pollinator for Granny smith as they flower at different times. If flowering overlaps they will help pollinate each other. Best though to use Dorsett Golden or Tropic Sweet for cross pollination of Anna. Granny Smith I would suggest maybe Fuji or Jonathon.
Why do I have to cross pollinate? How do I cross pollinate? Do I just buy that other plant and plant the two in the same pot? Do you sell the other variety too? From:
You cross pollinate to get the flowers to set fruit. It is the bees that pollinate them. Because they are cross pollinated that means you can't have the same variety you need another apple variety to cross pollinate it. Yes we do sell the other variety these ones will suit #DwarfApple811 #DwarfApple812 You need to have at least 2 of these growing in your backyard. Here is a detailed blog on the topic you can skip to the Cross Pollination section for details that apply to apples. http://blog.daleysfruit.com.au/2014/11/pollination-of-fruit-trees.html
