Apple Tree - Golden Delicious
A hugely popular, easy to grow apple tree.
The Golden Delicious Apple tree (Malus ‘Golden Delicious’) is one of the worlds most widely planted apple trees which is one of the easiest and most dependable apple trees to grow.
In the spring your Golden Delicious Apple tree will burst into bloom. Beautiful clusters of pink buds open to reveal snowy white flowers.
From September to October your Golden Delicious apples will turn from a pale green to their familiar golden green color signaling that they are ripe.

The Golden Delicious Apple tree is self fruiting, and does not need a pollinator. However, planting it with a pollinator will produce more fruit. Ideal pollinators are the Red delicious, Honeycrisp and Red Jonathan.

More warm hardy than most apple trees, the Golden delicious is easy to grow, produces large, high quality, all purpose apples with heavy annual crops making a great choice for you and your family.
