Apple Tree to Pair With Harvest Gold Crabapple
I realize most people do this the other way around. They select an apple tree and then attempt to find a crabapple (or another apple) that will help to pollinate it. However, I have a Harvest Gold Crabapple (or so it was labeled :-P) that came from Lowes and I started to think if it might be a good idea to plant an apple tree since I have a viable pollinator and space.
The problem is the only thing I've read is that crabapples bloom for longer periods than apples. I do not know how long the bloom period is exactly and what apple pollination groups (early spring, mid spring, late spring) I should be able to successfully pair with it
Does anyone have any experience with Harvest Gold and other apples? Or the expected bloom length of crabapples?
