I have just bought a few fruit trees and need to know if I need other types
or more than 1 of each for them to fruit.
The ones I have are Nectarines, and Valencia Orange.
I also have a single apple tree with both Golden Delicous and Granny Smith
grafted on. Will this single tree polinate 2 Sundowners and 2 Galas situated
around it? The Sundowner tag says it it semi self fertile. Does that mean it
will fruit by itself but not to it's full potential?
With all those varieties growing in the sane vicinity, pollination should not
be a problem--nectarines are a peach varient so that is probably self fetile--I
trust you have a greenhouse to grow your orange in--Ohio is not orange
territory. And since fruit trees are very susceptial to attack by all sorts of
insects and diseases you had better get in touch with your local extension
service and get the IPM program for your area--unless you follow the Integrated
Pest Mangement spray program you may not get much in the way of decent fruit
I believe most Nectarines, like Peaches, are self-fertile, but would
exact variety name to check for you.
Depending on how many blossoms of each variety get cross-pollinated,
the yield. Semi self fertile means it has the ability to be
self-fertile, but it
would do better if there were another variety tree nearby. Gala is
fertile, but probably should be pollinated with Golden Delicious. You
mention what varity of tree had the grafts on it. It may also act as
