I love Honey crisp apples but I know they are kind of finicky to grow. I was encouraged to see this as a more practical option for our harsh summers in Kansas.

Would a CandyCrisp Apple Tree variety be an adequate pollinator for the Stark Hart's Fancy apple tree?
Kristin M on Nov 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, they are both mid-season bloomers.
Will the Hart's Fancy pollinate with Granny Smith?
rowan on May 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Stark Hart's Fancy is a late bloomer; Granny Smith blooms much earlier and therefore wouldn't serve as a pollinator.
