    Pollination guide for Malus Gorgeous

    Malus Gorgeous is in flowering group 3. Malus Gorgeous is self-fertile and does not need a pollination partner, although fruiting may be improved if there is a compatible tree of a different variety nearby.

    Like most crab-apples it blooms over a long period and is therefore a good pollinator for other apple and cider-apple varieties flowering at the same time.
