Cross Pollination of Fruit Trees


Anonymous added on October 3, 2016 | Answered

I am planning to plant a dwarf Meyer lemon tree and an Algerian dwarf clementine near each other. Is there a danger of cross pollination so that I would have neither lemons nor clementines? Thank you.

Dwarf Meyer Lemon is self-fruitfull, it will not cross pollinate.

Algerian Dwarf Clementine is also self-fruiting but will produce more seeds and fruit with cross pollination.
