Apple Fruit Salad Trees grow to 2-3 metres high by approximately 2 metres wide. They can be planted in the ground and also supported by espalier method to provide support as the tree grows along wires or framework.

No, there's no need to plant two Fruit Salad Trees to cross-pollinate, as the grafts are chosen to pollinate each other.
The first fruits will appear in approximately 6-18 months. It's best to remove most of these fruits when they are the size of a tiny pea and allow the framework (branches) of all the grafts to develop first. This is especially important whilst the tree is young.
As the tree grows, thin out/reduce the amount of fruit that has set, always promoting branch growth as well as fruit production. Branch framework needs to be ahead of fruit production to carry the weight of the fruit and establish correct tree shape. More fruit may be allowed to set on any faster growing grafts however, as the fruit production will slow the growth of the branches. Always reduce the number of fruit on the slower growing varieties to allow more energy to go into developing the branches.
