Sunflower was discovered in Kansas by Milo Gibson, circa 1970. The tree has proven to be strong, vigorous and resilient, tending to grow more wide than tall. Fruits are generally medium-large with some real jumbos tipping the scales at over a pound! Excellent, complex flavour is described by Blake Cothron as 'caramel-vanilla-nutty with a mild, fruity aroma.' Sunflower has stood the test of time and according to some sources it is practically self-fertile.

Pollenator definitions
Some trees and many berry plants are SELF-FERTILE ̶means the insect pollinators or even the wind can pollinate the blossoms without the need of a second tree.
NEEDS A POLLENIZER ̶ means another tree of the same type or kind but a different variety must be blooming nearby at the same time.
EXAMPLE A Liberty apple and a Wealthy apple can cross-pollinate. Two trees of the same variety ie: ̶ 2 Wealthy apples, cannot cross pollinate because they are genetically identical.
Other trees are marked as SEMI-FERTILE. These will set fruit without a second tree. However they will often bear more, and sometimes larger fruit if another variety of the same kind of tree is nearby.
You can select 2 different trees of the same kind marked as NEEDS A POLLENIZER or plant one of those along with one SELF-FERTILE or one SEMI-FERTILE. Also consider ripening times ̶ a Goldrush apple might not start blooming before a Pristine is finished.
