Product Description

A Lifetime of Sweet, Juicy Home-Grown Apples

The Golden Delicious Apple Tree produces tasty apples that are extra juicy, super crisp and extremely sweet, making it ideal for cooking, baking lots of delicious desserts, and eating fresh. In fact, it's one of the country’s most popular apples, and always a fall favorite.

Plus, it's the perfect tree for the impatient apple lover because you won't have to wait long for your fruit. Plant it in full sun, with well-drained soil, and you will be rewarded with delicious apples that last for months when properly stored.

Even better? The Golden Delicious Apple Tree is disease resistant and adaptable to most soil types. So, you can grow your apples without having to spray pesticides. But the best part is that we've pruned our trees consistently over time, to promote more branching and a stronger structure. This takes more time, but it produces a tree we are proud to offer.

However, the highest quality and quantity of fruit is harvested when cross-pollination occurs, so we do recommend cross-pollinating the Golden Delicious Apple Tree with the Gala, Red Fuji or Granny Smith Apple Trees for best results.

Now, you'll get bushels of great-tasting apples, right from your own backyard, because of our proven process and the Golden Delicious's delectable production. You'll have enough to last for months, with plenty to give away to family and friends - get your Golden Delicious Apple Tree today!

Planting & Care


1. Planting: For best results, find a location with well-drained soil and full sun - about 6 hours of sunlight per day. Once you've selected a location, dig a hole that's twice the width of the root ball and just as deep. Then, place your tree, backfill and tamp down the soil, and water to settle the soil. Finally, mulch to retain moisture.

*Tip: Make sure your mulch is not touching the base of the trunk.

2. Watering: Your apple will benefit from a regular watering each week, though you may have to water more during times of drought. If you're not sure when to water, simply check the soil down to a depth of about 2 or 3 inches - if it's dry here, it's time to water.

3. Pruning: Once your tree has become established and is starting to bear fruit, it will need some periodic, moderate pruning. Only prune the tree during times of dormancy, making sure to remove any vigorous, upright stems and weak, damaged or dead branches.
