75 in stock

Vineland Research has high hopes for their newest release and so do we! Dewdrop is from the same program that produced such reliable performers as AC™ Harrow Crisp, AC™ Harrow Sweet and AC™ Harovin Sundown. Dewdrop has a pleasant, refreshing flavour and crisp yet melting texture. In fact, in blind taste tests consumers preferred it over Bosc, Anjou and Bartlett. Bountiful annual crops of large, elongated fruit on a spreading, fireblight resistant tree. Keeps up to three months.

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.
