Why Get the Red Delicious Apple Tree?
• America's favorite - the juiciest apple
• Heavily-branched variety gives you an abundant harvest
• Low-maintenance – pest- and disease-resistant
• Matures to perfect picking height (15 feet)
Where Does the Red Delicious Apple Tree Grow Best?
These trees thrive anywhere in Growing Zones 5-9. They’re extremely adaptable, but still need 6-8 hours of sunlight a day, and 700 chill hours, in order to produce fruit. Plant them in an area that gets good drainage - no standing water. They mature up to just 15 feet tall and 10 feet wide, so they are will easily fit into most tight spaces and small yards.
Is the Red Delicious Apple Tree Easy to Grow Organically?
This is one of the most famous organic fruits you can grow. It’s the perfect apple for home gardening because of its amazing taste and disease-resistance. Red Delicious apples are extremely popular because they are so juicy. And, since they are native trees, they’re pest- and disease-resistant, so you don’t need to constantly spray chemicals like pesticides on your fruit!
How Much Fruit Will I Get?
Your Red Delicious Apple Tree will be a year older than most trees you get from other nurseries. We have spent the past year pruning your tree to encourage more branching. More branching means you’ll get a larger harvest of apples every year! Typically, a tree will yield 2 to 5 bushels of apples per harvest, which can be as much as 200 pounds of fruit!
What Does the Red Delicious Apple Taste Like?
Red Delicious apples are extremely juicy. The flesh is white and crisp, with a sweet flavor. It's perfect right off the tree - bite into it or slice it up. Add honey or peanut butter for a healthy snack. Great for pies and apple crisps, too!
Pollination and Fruiting Season
This tree is not self-fertile, so it needs to be planted with a pollinator. Plant at least 3 trees within 100 feet for best results. We recommend another Red Delicious, Yellow Delicious, and Jonathan varieties. This group of pollinators will multiply your fruit production! The fruit ripens from August to September, and stores well for several months without losing flavor.
Best Time to Plant
These trees are known for their adaptability, so you can plant them any time of year without any problems. Just make sure your ground isn’t frozen. We recommend planting as soon as possible, since they will need a little time to adapt to their new climate.
Due to agricultural restrictions, we cannot ship these trees to AZ, CA, ID, or OR.
