The heights we list are after we prune your tree.
Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back and to produce fruit.
We prune your tree throughout its life. This process takes us longer, but gives you more branches and quicker production.
Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.
Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you results the first full season.
• America’s favorite apple!
• "Branched" to produce apples quicker
• Adaptable to various soil types
Red Delicious Apples are the most widely grown apples throughout the world because of their delicious flavor. Juicy, crispy… everything you’d want.
Also known as ‘America’s Favorite Snacking Apple!’
Red Delicious trees are normally planted with a different kind of apple so they can pollinate each other. This pollination causes your trees to produce more fruit!
These Red Delicious Apple Trees have already produced apples in our nursery!
Red Delicious Apple Trees not only give you great flavor, but they are beautiful trees. They mature to a height 15 feet tall, making a great addition to your yard.
Our trees are pruned back and trained to develop a branching structure. This process takes more work and an extra year for us, but the difference you experience is dramatic.
We even give your apple tree one final pruning before shipping at no additional cost to you.
This process also allows the tree to remain "dwarfed," which makes harvesting a breeze!
Our Dwarf Red Delicious will be productive when paired with a Granny Smith. Cross pollination is the key for healthy, hearty, heavy fruit production.
Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.
Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area. Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free. Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.
We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.
Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Red Delicious Apple Tree.
If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.
First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.
Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.
Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.
Next, separate the roots of your Red Delicious Apple Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.
The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.
Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.
To make it just right, use a level.
As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.
Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.
Water your Red Delicious Apple Tree again after the transplant is complete.
To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.
