More advice about pollination

Please note that our whilst our system takes many relevant factors into account, it is certainly not completely accurate

Crab apples

It is worth remembering that most white-blossom 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.
