QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • Will queen cox fertilize shizuka?

    Yes, and Queen Cox is self-fertile in most areas making it a good pair for triploid apples.

  • Is the Shizuka apple recommended for 9b zone? Scab and blight resistant?

    No, as a Japanese apple it does not have specific disease resistances and requires a fair number of chill hours.

  • How many chill hours for Shizuka and Akane apples, and will they pollinate each other?

    Both are 800+ and yes they do!
