Varieties Of Apple Trees – One Bloomed And Others Won`t Get Pollinated

Q: I have three varieties of apple trees. The Red Delicious bloomed before the other two so it won’t get pollinated. Any suggestions?

A: When one apple blooms before others, look around for a crabapple that’s blooming and bring some flowering branches to your yard. Hang them among the apple branches to attract pollinators. Also consider planting a small crabapple in a corner of the yard for reliable pollination in the future.
