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.

Bebra on Apr 20, 2018
