There are a few apples and peaches considered self-fruitful: Redhaven, Norman, Carolina Belle (white-fleshed), Winblo, Contender, Summer Pearl (white-fleshed), Cresthaven, Encore, and Legend are all considered self-fruitful peaches. Although some apple varieties, such as Lodi, Liberty, Empire, Winesap, Jonathan, Jonagold, Gala, Golden Delicious, Rome and Granny Smith are listed as self-fruitful, they will set more fruit on an annual basis if they are cross-pollinated. However, if you have room for only one tree, choose one of the above. Hope you have a bountiful harvest!
