Semi dwarf and dwarf apple tree varieties produce fruit in 2 to 3 years. Semi dwarf varieties usually are 12 to 15 feet tall. Cross-pollinations recommended for all apple varieties to produce fruit. Crabapples planted within a quarter mile of your apple tree may serve as a pollinizer if bloom times align.

Gala, Honeycrisp, Liberty, Golden delicious, Lodi, Yellow transparent, Jonathan, Red Baron, are all popular varieties.

Thank you for using Ask an Expert--and congratulations for asking about varieties of several fruits BEFORE you purchase whatever is in the store, because many times retailers stock the most well-known varieties without careful consideration of what really does grow well.

A couple of great publications for growing fruit trees in Oregon.
