March 10, 2010 Garden Stumper quiz

QUESTION: What apple varieties get pollinated by Gravenstein apple trees?

ANSWER: None! Gravenstein's are triploid, meaning they have three sets of chromosomes. If you want to get apples on your gravenstein tree, you will need to have another apple variety within bee range. And here's the tricky part, if you want to get apples on the second tree, your will need a THIRD apple variety within bee range to pollinate it!
