Question & Answer

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

Planted 2008 and seemed to be going strong but curled up its toes in Winter 2009 which was very disappointing.  Have just received a replacement which I will plant on the weekend so hopefully I will not have the same problem.

The replacement tree is going well.  Hopefully it will survive.  Has had a few bugs on the new growth which I have controlled manually at this stage - not sure what they were - little yellow bugs about the size of a flea.

No bugs worrying it now that it has matured a little more.  No flowers yet, though hope there will be some to help its companion along.

Want to be the first of our friends to grow an apple tree in Cairns!!

I have been told there is an apple orchard of some 200 of these North of Port Douglas... so I am keen to try this out!

Newly planted in Semi shaded position/ more sun but sheltered while young from hot afternoon sun. Prepared base with a mixure of sand, quincan, potting mix, and compost.  Going by the theory of needing loads of drainage in the wet season but also many plants doesn't really like our hot "full sun", so filtered sun would be better especially while young.

We have chooks that free range under also. loads of free fertiliser :)

Pollination: Self Pollination

VF1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2021 days 14hrs

Comments: -

Have grown at previous property, and they really are like a Red Delicious. I didn't really want to grow apples again as they are high maintenance plants, but they are my son's favourite fruit.  At least now I know what I'm in for!  At least there should be less pruning, as this is a dwarf.

When growing your own apples, apart from the obvious benefit of having super fresh fruit, you can avoid all the stronger chemicals used in commercial orchards which are sprayed frequently.

Planted: 2012

Growing: In a Pot

Qty: 1

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Pollination: Cross Pollination

Cross Pollinator Variety: Tropic Sweet

Pest Control:

Be vigilant with fungal sprays (organic ok), and use exclusion nets as soon as fruit sets - keeps out bugs, birds, bats, possums.

I am wondering myself whether or not these would really be suitable for coastel north of Brisbane weather. I think not actually and I wondered what sort of climate you are ine. What would be the lowest temperature you get down to in winter?

Our Tropical Apple - Anna - was thriving, and had small but delicious, crisp, red-delicious type apples. Then a bobcat driver accidentally ran over it. I still have a Dorsett Golden as a pollinator, but our replacement Anna has yet to fruit.

This tree is sited very near the absorption trench and never looks unhappy.
