Whether a fruit type is self-fruitful or requires cross-pollination influences how varieties are arranged in a planting. This two-page publication will help growers become familiar with common terms describing fruitfulness and pollination characteristics—and thus better select fruit for planting. Includes glossary of basic terms such as self-pollination, cross-pollination, self-fruitful, cross-fruitful; also includes table of pollination and fruiting characteristics of Alabama fruit types, such as tree fruit, small fruit, and subtropical and exotic fruit.
