I actually wanted a fuji because something (animal) damaged ours last year and it never came back out. There aren't any dwarf fuji's available so I decided to try something new and I am excited to try Braeburn apples.

I???m interested in adding a Braeburn apple to my apple orchard will it pollinate with any of the ones I already have; chenago strawberry, cinnamon spice, or wine crisp?
Megan L on Oct 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Lauren, I'm going to need to do some research on this because I'm finding contradicting information. We are currently working on a project to update our bloom times and this one appears to have changed. I will send you and Megan an email once I get a solid answer on this.

When I purchase an apple tree, can I have any two that will pollinate or do I need a specific two?
AngiW on Jan 27, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hi Angi - We appreciate you reaching out to us. This is a great question. We try to list a few good pollinators in each description but you can choose your own by selecting another variety that has the same 'bloom time' characteristic.

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us. Have a great day!
