|I have an Anna, Granny Smith and Ein Shiemer apple tree in my garden. They are planted in that order. They have been planted for a little over a year. When will I see fruit? Do I have them planted in the right order or do I need to have them mated a different way??

|Anna and Ein Shiemer are perfect for cross-pollination. Granny Smith is considered self-fruitful but will produce a larger crop if another apple tree is in the vicinity. So, between your three trees, you should have great pollination. Apple trees normal begin producing about 3 years after they've been planted. A little patience on your part is all that's required. Enjoy your trees!
