Arkansas Black Apple

lsmcw(7b-AL)October 26, 2013

I recently planted an Arkansas Black and, after research, learned that it needs two pollinators. Different websites and growers recommend different varieties to use as pollinators. Also, some say it needs 1 and some say 2. Does anyone here have experience with this apple? Help!

It's a Triploid which means It doesn't pollinate itself so you will not get apples. You will need another apple tree that blooms the same time to pollinate it. And a third To really do a good all around pollination for all three.
