Apple Varieties - Pollination Guide
Below are apple varieties in six pollination groups.
Apples in any group will be good pollinators for other varieties of apples in the same
group, one group lower and one group higher.
For example, an apple tree in group 4 will be pollinated not only by others
in group 4 but also those in groups 3 and 5. The lower the group, the earlier in the year
the flowers are produced.
Those marked triploid are not more difficult for pollination because they require
two other varieties within the same group for pollination to occur.
These are not good varieties to choose unless your area has several
other apple trees nearby.

Message: On your Apple Pollination Guide, you say "Those marked triploid are not more difficult for pollination". Do you perhaps intend, "Those marked triploid are a lot more difficult for pollination".
