Is This Plant Self Pollinating?

Ginger Gold Apple Tree requires a pollenizer. You must plant one of these trees nearby (within about 50') for the tree to produce a crop of fruit.

Description

Malus domestica

The Ginger Gold is a survivor. Named after a Virginia farmer's wife, this variety remained after hurricane Camille wiped other apple trees out in 1969. It lived on to give us a variety with large golden fruit and flesh that resists turning brown. It has a mild taste, but a tart finish, which makes it an excellent choice for eating fresh or classic apple pie. It's the first yellow apple to ripen in the Fall. Works well with Fuji or Gala as pollinators.

Planting & Care
Apples tolerate many soil types, but grow best in well-drained, loamy soil. Apples grow best in full sun where there is cold in winter, moderate summer temperatures, and medium to high humidity. Water regularly, at least weekly. Keep the soil evenly moist, but not wet. Apples benefit from pruning, which is normally carried out while the trees are still dormant in late Winter. Apple trees can live for 100 years or more.
