Most fruit trees need cross pollination by another cultivar from the same family. All
apples, crabapples and applecrabs are related and can cross pollinate each other. You need a minimum of two different
trees from the apple (Malus) family to achieve good quality and quantity fruit set. For example, if you have a
Parkland apple then you need another type such as the Norland. Bees and insects can cross pollinate your trees from
other apples trees growing in the neighborhood with 150 metres (450 feet).
