Question: Ibought: THDA 6667-gala apple. Does this need a pollinator? will planting it within 50' of a jonathan apple work? Thda8082 anjou pear. Will red bartlett pollinate this?
thda2597-doew this need a pollinator? Will stanley plun work?

Answer: Most pear varieties are self-unfruitful. However, nearly all pears are suitable pollinizers for other varieties that bloom at the same time. Your Gala and Jonathan apples are compatible so you should have a heavy fruit crop from both. Most European plums (e.g., Bluefre, Blue Ribbon, Earliblue) either benefit from or require cross-pollination from another European variety. However, European or prune-type plums, such as Stanley and Damson, are self-fruitful.

Best wishes with your fruit trees.
