Apple pollination #237098

Asked April 15, 2015, 9:10 AM EDT

Stark Nurseries advised me that the Lodi and Braeburn were cross pollinators, i.e., each needed each other.  Well, the Lodi always blossoms late and after the Braeburn.  I am looking for another apple tree that will help the Braeburn since it is a heavy producer.  One problem is an apple tree that likes our climate.

Hello,

In general, apples are very high input crops and are very difficult to grow in most parts of Texas.

However, for your particular situation and needs, consider planting a Mollies delicious apple.

Good luck!
