Pollination guide for Malus Royal Beauty

Malus Royal Beauty is in flowering group 3. Malus Royal Beauty is self-fertile and does not need a pollination partner, although fruiting may be improved if there is a compatible tree of a different variety nearby.

Like most crab-apples it blooms over a long period and is therefore a good pollinator for other apple and cider-apple varieties flowering at the same time.
