Product Description

A Supermarket Favorite, Grown at Home

The Red Delicious is America's favorite apple for snacking and baking... and the most popular apple grown. Plus, not only is the fruit amazing, but the tree itself is a must-have.

In fact, the Red Delicious Trees in our nursery have been pre-pruned for you to promote heavy branching - more branches mean more fruit for you! Even better? These tender apples are ready to pick in August through September. You can expect 2 to 5 bushels of apples every year.

And our trees are hardy, and pest and disease resistant. They are drought-tolerant, adaptable to most soil types, and can be grown in most areas of the country. So, our Red Delicious Apple Trees are super easy when it comes to upkeep.

For proper cross-pollination, we do recommend planting the Red Delicious apple tree with the Granny Smith. This will ensure a huge crop of apples for friends and family, and the whole process couldn't be simpler.

Basically, the Red Delicious merges effortless growth with versatility and adaptability. And because we care for our trees from day one, you get a proven performer in your landscape. Why wait? Get your Red Delicious today!

Planting Care for the Red Delicious Apple Tree

Your Dwarf Red Delicious Apple needs lots of bright sunlight. Plant it in a spot that gets full sun (6-8 hours per day).
Water your Dwarf Red Delicious Apple regularly each week, more so during times of drought. When in doubt, check the soil 2-3 inches down and water when dry.
Use a fertilizer that's formulated for apple trees and follow all label directions, which typically require applications from spring through summer.
