My old Jonagold is reaching the end of its productive life. The old tree produced the best flavored and some of the largest apples I have ever eaten. The tree is susceptible to fire blight; so, special care is needed if dead leaves are observed. I sold ~$500 dollars worth of apples off of the old tree.

Can these be grown in large containers?
Joni H on Mar 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Joni,try a dwarf variety in container.It will need a lot of TLC,would do better in the ground ground-just my thoughts -wayne
If I buy two or three jonagold trees, will I still need to purchase another pollinator tree of some sort?
Gary S on Apr 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the Jonagold apple is a triploid apple: http://www.starkbros.com/growing-guide/article/growing-triploid-apple-trees It is pollen sterile and can not pollinate other trees. You need to pair Jonagold with a compatible pollinator. For Jonagold we recommend Stark® Jon-A-Red® Jonathan or any Golden Delicious.

I purchased 2 Jonagold Apple trees last year and they came in perfect condition. I planted them last fall, and they have already begun to leaf out this spring. Jonagold is one of my favorite apples from a local orchard so I am very excited to see how they turn out.
