Pollination of Gravenstein apple trees

Your Gravenstein apple tree is in flowering group 1. It is a triploid variety and needs two pollination partners nearby which must both be of different varieties and able to cross-pollinate each other as well as the Gravenstein. Alternatively choose a single self-fertile pollination partner. The following varieties will pollinate this apple tree. (Most white-blossom crab-apples will also be good pollinators for this variety).

More advice about pollination

Please note that our whilst our system takes many relevant factors into account, it is certainly not completely accurate

Our article on the pollination of fruit trees gives more details of the factors involved in pollination.

Crab apples

It is worth remembering that most white-blossom crab apple trees make excellent pollinators for almost any apple variety. This is because they produce very large quantities of pollen over a long period and are (with some exceptions) only distantly related to mainstream apple varieties so their pollen is highly compatible.
