Most apple trees need many hours (500 – 1,000 hours) of cold temperatures in order to blossom. In Spring the warmth triggers the blooming and fruiting cycle. “Tropical” varieties are actually low-chill varieties that do not need such a long chill period, and can, therefore, be grown in warmer climes. There are many types, varieties and growth forms of apple trees, from standard tree to dwarf, the mature size being controlled by the root stock used during grafting. The cultivation is the same for all types and varieties; only the pruning is different, One of the best ways to choose a variety of apple tree to grow is to see what varieties do well in your locality. Be aware that most apple trees need pollinators in order to fruit. Some varieties need one other tree as a pollinator, and some need two, or even three. If you have apple trees in neighbouring gardens this should help, as long as they flower at the same time. ‘Golden Doresett’ bears gold coloured fruits, similar to ‘Golden Delicious’ – but only needing 300 chilling hours
