Apple Trees - Knowledgebase Question

Vernon, NY
Question by preamble
March 2, 1999
We read in NGA that normally, apple trees will produce within two years after planting. Sadly and somewhat embarrassing, to say the least, we've had a total of six apple trees in the ground for 5 years and have yet to get ONE SINGLE APPLE (am I yelling? Obviously after reading that by NGA)

We get leaves and we get blooms but we sure as heck don't get a fruit, how come?

Perhaps you need a different pollinator variety? Or your varieties are too far apart? Most apples need another apple variety within 50 feet for pollination. I hope that's it because I'd be upset, too.
