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 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.
