The Q&A Archives: pollinated trees

Question: How do I know if a tree is self pollinated or not?
Some say it on tags others do not. Also on a tree that is not self pollinating, can you have the same fruit tree next to it or another variety will work?


Answer: If the tag does not say self pollinating then you would need a pollen source. This must be another variety of the same fruit and they must bloom at the same time so the pollen is available at the right time. They may be planted next to each other or close by. I hope this answers your question.
