I bought a red and yellow delicious a few months ago, and I didn't read properly, and didn't realize they needed to be within 50 feet of each other when I planted them. I think they ended up at about 52 to 54 feet....Is that still ok?

I would think so. Hopefully the bees won't be so lazy they can't fly a few extra feet ;)! Congrats on your trees! I have Red Delicious, Yellow Delicious, Honeycrisp and Mutsu (aka Crispen).

Thanks. I'm hoping to plant peach trees too, and a garden, and flowers that will hopefully attract bees. So hopefully that will help them get around the yard.

I have peach trees as well. Two Contender and a Red Haven. And my garden... well it has been 50' x 60', but this was the second year in a row it got away from me. I will be cutting it and half and using the other half for grazing for the chickens. Good luck with your garden and fruit trees!

You should be ok, but it's really pushing it. (I have a whole orchard.) Bees usually figure it out, especially if you manage something in between to keep the buzzers moving like a little floral area and a water source with stones in it for them to perch and drink from.
