Apple Tree Pollination
Hi: I live in the San Fernando Valley in Southern California and I think I am zone USDA 8a or 9 . I planted a Semi-dwarf Fuji apple tree, then uprooted it and moved it to a new location after a year. The first year, it gave a few small apples. The second year after the move, so far I have a ton of flowers but don't see much fruiting going on. We do have bees. I have two questions: is the tree on track? Do I need to do much else?
Second, I am thinking of planting a dwarf Arkansas Black apple tree that will need a pollinator. This new tree would be approx. 100-125 feet away from the Fuji as there are other trees near that one. Will this allow for enough pollination? We have several other fruit trees, vegetables and flowers in the yard and our bees are very happy. Thanks for any advice!
