Questions & Answers

What is a pollinator? Does this mean I need another tree for this tree to produce fruit?

Asked by: Rita

What are chill hours

What are chill hours
Asked by: Mo
Chill hours are the number of hours per year where the temperature is below 45F, In this case the gala apple tree should have 500 hours or less.

How long until the tree produces fruit?

Asked by: NN
Dwarfs and semi-dwarfs will bear in 3 to 4 years, yielding 1 to 2 bushels per year. Standard-size trees will bear in 5 to 8 years, yielding 4 to 5 bushels of apples per year.
