Before a fruit tree can bear fruit, the flowers must be pollinated. The Fertilization of fruit trees takes place differently depending on the variety.

Crab apples
Ornamental apples have a pollen that is suitable for fertilizing different types of apple. When paying more attention to the fruit as jewelry for ornamental apples, it should be borne in mind that noble varieties are often not accepted as pollen donors for ornamental plants.

Blutpflaume and sloe
The blood plum and the sloe both flower earlier than other plum and plum varieties, but these are self-fertile and therefore not dependent on the other species during fertilization.

Large green reindeer lode
The Great Green Reneclode needs a pollinator tree and blooms together with the plum.

Zierkirsche
Ornamental cherries bloom too early and the conditions for pollination with sweet cherries are so complicated that information has to be obtained from the fruit tree nursery in order to be able to put together suitable varieties for pollination.

Ornamental plants often have double flowers and here the stamens and stigmas are shaped as petals. Therefore, these trees are not suitable for noble varieties as pollinators.

Self-fertile fruits
Self-fertile fruits include peaches and apricots, quinces, medlars, gooseberries and currants, blackberries and raspberries, walnuts and grapevines.

Even sterile varieties are pears and apples as well as hazelnuts and sweet cherries. When it comes to fertilization, the sour cherries and also the plums are dependent on the variety.
