We have Dorsett Golden in our Prayer Garden (Klein United Methodist Church, Spring, TX) and it blooms every year with many apples. We have only one apple tree in the garden/area - so we are not sure how it is pollinated - but it does.
We had a warm winter, cool spring, and the tree is fruiting very nicely.

This tree was a new planting, espaliered to 4 stakes, and introduced to my front garden in May, 2008. It is about 4 feet tall, 5 feet wide. It already had quite a few small apples. It looked good for about a month, then started losing leaves, dropping fruit, and looking like it might die. I just made sure it got water, and tried to let it rest. It had good amendments and fertilizer at planting. I gave some fish emulsion in November. In December it started to get new leaves, and has blossomed on the living branches. There are two or three slender branches that appear to be dead. I am happy to see this progress, does anyone have advice about pruning the dead branches? We are in Southern California, about five miles from the coast.

This apple variety needs no winter chill to flower and produce fruit. It is grown in Hawai'i in the higher elevations as well as sea level where my trees are. The tree often blossoms several times a year and produces an abundance of medium-sized yellowish-green fruit that are quite sweet. At sea leve, production is best if the leaves are stripped off the tree at least once a year.
