How Does Apple Tree Pollination Work?

In order to produce fruit, apple tree flowers must be pollinated with pollen from another apple tree, preferably a different variety. Therefore, we recommend planting at least two different apple trees in your garden so that bees and insects can move pollen from one flower to another. Apple trees flower at three different times in the spring: early season, mid season and late season. Plant varieties that bloom at the same time. To complicate matters, some apple tree flowers are sterile - meaning that their pollen can not be used to pollinate other trees. These trees are called triploid varieties. If you want to plant one of these varieties, ensure that you also plant a third tree so that all will pollinate each other.
