Has anyone tried the 'Pinkabelle' Pink Lady Dwarf Tree.
Just bought one today and will put it in a pot.
Sounds good. 2mx1m :)

Haven't tried one but Pink Lady is my favorite variety, so a mini version sounds great.
Glad to see you have an avatar....and that I can see it! :)

:wave: Hey Tristrin,
About time I got myself an avatar. Took me long enough and glad it is visible. Not sure whether I will stick with it. Its a shot of one of my grevilleas. :)
I looked up some more about the Pinkabelle and it says that they dont need to cross pollinate but do better if they do. Suggestions were Fuji, Gala, Granny Smith , Crab apples and Red Delicious. The company website is plantnet.com.au and they do sales online. The cross pollinators are also dwarf plants. I got my Pinkabelle from Bunnings for $39 but I think PlantNet sells them for $33 for larger pot.

Thanks SM might look into getting one. We already have a granny smith, so that will help with pollination

I have a Pinkerbelle, a little like you, it sounded pretty good, we shall have to wait and see how good it ends up, I still haven;t planted it yet, but I did plant the Granny Smith ready for cross pollination. Mitch has one that he got a year or two ago, he said that it's been performing pretty well for him.

Thats good to hear, EB. I potted mine and now have to get a Red Delish to cross pollinate.
