I have Macintosh, Rubymac, Jonagold, Taylor Spur Rome, Fuji & Granny Smith already; are any of these appropriate pollinators for Little Jewel? Also interested in Liberty, but it seems only my Grannies would be a pollinator???
Jessica R on Aug 20, 2019
BEST ANSWER: As to your first question: Fuji or Granny Smith will pollinate Little Jewel. You are correct about the Granny Smith being the only one of your trees capable of pollinating Liberty.
Would Stark Little Jewel Apple & Starkrimson Gala pollinate each other?
Todd on Jun 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Starkrimson Gala is an early-midseason bloomer; Little Jewel is midseason. There should be enough overlap, but it might be a little chancy.
Will a Golden Delicious tree be a good pollinator for the Stark Little Jewel?
Becky G on May 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it would. They're in the same flowering group.
how tall does Stark?? Little Jewel Apple tree get?
Bebra on Apr 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: That would depend on the option you choose: dwarf or semi-dwarf. Mature sizes are shown in the Size & Spacing section for both tree sizes.
