We recommend all PlantNet® apple varieties be sold with suitable pollination partners listed above. Ensure you purchase pollination partners and encourage customers to look at varieties that suit each other.

Note that varieties can differ in flowering and fruiting times depending on your location. Growing a handful of sample trees will let you know approximate flowering, pollinating, and fruiting times for each variety.

Common Customer FAQs

Why isn’t my Pinkabelle apple red?

Pinkabelles, like all Cripps Pink (Pink Lady) apples, colour very late in their season. Usually, they will become a rich pink in April/May. Leave the apples on the tree for them to finish colouring.

Can I grow Super Dwarf Apples in warmer climates?

Yes, but not in subtropical/tropical environments. The rootstock requires more chill hours than subtropical and tropical climates can provide.

How often should I fertilise an apple tree?

Refer to our 3-year fertiliser trials for information on our findings.

Can I use two of the same varieties to pollinate each other when I have limited space?

No – but you can multi-plant two dwarf varieties in the same hole to minimise space usage and enjoy the fruits from two trees that look like one!
