I`ve just chopped down a cherry tree which had canker and need to replace it with another fruit tree. Apple or pear is my choice but I`m not sure about the rules of pollination. Any advice?



An apple will need another variety which is in flower at the same time. There are lists of compatible pollinators on the internet. If you buy from a reputable nursery they should advise you. sorry don't know about pears.
