Would a golden delicious tree be a polenator for a fuji ?
Tom Y on May 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, Golden Delicious is an excellent choice for pollinating Fuji apple trees!
Do the apples still store well in this earlier variety?
Gail P on May 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This variety's keeping quality is maintained for up to 8 months in Controlled Atmosphere storage, or 4 to 5 months in common storage at 32ºF.
Can you plant any type of apple try to pollinate fuji apple trees or does it need to be specific trees?
Lance S on Apr 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It has to be an apple tree to cross pollinate the Fuji, but not just any apple tree will work. There are some apple varieties that are pollen sterile ("triploids") and therefore cannot pollinate other apple trees. We recommend early to mid-season blooming varieties like Lodi, Granny Smith, Gala, Golden Delicious, and so on.

Fuji Apple Review South Carolina
I needed the Fuji Apple to cross pollinate with a red delicious apple. The tree is doing fine and coming right along. While it was too young to bear fruit, it did have some blossoms this year.

Excellent service.
My September Fuji Apple trees are growing well this year. I had some problems the first time I tried to get them going. I don't know whether it was my rookie plantings or a root disease, I lost one, 2 years in a row. Stark brothers went above the norm and replaced them at no cost to me. I had flowers on my pollinator tree this year and with some careful pruning this off season, I expect some apples next year from the Fiji trees. I got the starter kit and it has worked well too. Very happy.

Death of an Apple Tree
My September Wonder Fuji Apple tree arrived in what seemed to be a 'good condition', however it doesn't appear to have survived the mild Missouri winter. I had great hopes of watching this dwarf thrive in my lush urban garden. Back to the drawing board for this seasoned gardener!

I was disapointed in the size of the root system. It will take a couple of years to develop a root system and branch formation. RAW
