Patio Apples pollination question

Hampshire, United Kingdom Gb

I have just brought a duo patio apple - Queen Cox on one side and Greensleeves on the other. Are they ok to pollinate each other (both come out Sept time) or do I need another? And has anyone had any problems that I should be aware of? Thanks

On plant Malus



My fruit book is fairly old and doesn't mention Queen Cox so I guess it's a newer variety. But if it was bred from Cox's Ornage Pippin then it is compatible with Greensleeves. If they both flower at the same time, you're OK

Lovely, thanks very much - I'm really looking forward to some apples.
