While some varieties of fruit trees are self-fertilising within the same species, others are not, which is referred to as being self-sterile. Self-fertile means that any flowers on a tree can fertilise any others on the same tree. Therefore, a single individual plant can bear fruit normally. On the other hand, growing a self-sterile fruit tree implies the requirement for a second, not necessarily of the same variety, individual tree for pollination to take place. A self-fertile variety will thus contributes to the pollination of a self-sterile variety. All that is required is to check whether the flowering periods of the two varieties coincide.
