I just purchased 2 Honey apple trees. For best results from these trees, do I need to plant anything else or are the 2 trees okay. I checked the site and it had pears and grapes as good matches. I am confused. Please help.

Most apple trees should be considered self-unfruitful and will bear a larger crop with a second, different apple tree in the area. Honeycrisp blooms in mid-season and will pollinate all other early blooming apple varieties, varieties blooming in the middle of the season, and also varieties blooming late in the season. For best fruit set on your two Honey Crisp apple trees, plant a Jonathan, Gala, or Fireside/Connell Red. Best wishes with your apple trees.
