Yellow Transparent, like most cultivars is not self pollinating. In order to bare fruit it must be pollinated by another variety. A similar variety is always best. Grafted Trees are also available, with two or more varieties grafted together on one stock to ensure adequate pollination.




The results of this cross-pollination does not produce cross pollinated fruits, they will stay true to variety. The seeds however, should you plant them, will not produce true to the original cultivar.
