description for "Apples: Malus domestica 'Jonagold'"
Semi-dwarf 'Jonagold' combines the best of 'Golden Delicious' and 'Jonathan' traits in one apple. Scarlet stripes over gold background. A fine keeper with heavy yields. Two varieties are needed for pollination. Yields an average of 5 bushels with some variation depending on the season. Will reach a height of 10-12 feet at maturity. Plant trees 15-20 feet apart. One year plant. Needs well drained soil. Full sun is best, but must have at least a half day of sun. Good for an espalier. Two varieties are needed for pollination. 'Cortland', 'McIntosh' and 'Yellow Delicious' are particularly effective pollinators. 'Jonagold' is not a pollinator of other apple varieties. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
