Pollination guide for Galloway Pippin

Galloway Pippin is in flowering group 3. Galloway Pippin is a triploid variety and cannot pollinate other varieties. It needs to be pollinated by another tree of a different variety nearby. You can either plant a self-fertile variety (which will pollinate itself and the Galloway Pippin) or you can plant two pollination partners which must each be of different varieties and able to cross-pollinate each other as well as the Galloway Pippin. If you need further advice on this just get in touch. Since it flowers in the middle of the blossom season it can be pollinated by most other apple trees.
