Some Apples are considered self-fertile. To ensure good crops, apples should have a pollinating partner. There is much overlap in bloom times, but for the best crops, choose a partner with the same bloom time or one step in either direction. Two steps in either direction will also work, but early blooming apples shouldn’t be partnered with late blooming apples. Crabapples with white flowers are known as particularly good pollinizers, and are beautiful and showy in the spring.
