    The benefits of the Drop ‘N Grow™ bag…

    These trees are originally grown in a field and naturally have a larger root system than container grown trees. This means you get a plant that will become established quicker and provide you with superior growth in the spring.

    Your tree arrives dormant (sleeping for the winter). Without foliage to support, it doesn't require as much water or nutrients to survive. So transplanting is stress-free.

    If you plant in the winter, your roots will continue to grow and become more established. When spring arrives you will see bright new foliage appearing. 

    These will be the easiest trees you have every planted!  Simply dig your hole, place the Drop ‘N Grow™ bag in the center (burlap included) then use excess dirt to fill the hole.  That’s it!

GROW DELICIOUS FRUIT WITHOUT THE WAIT

- America's favorite apple!
- 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.

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.


Red Delicious Apple Tree Pollination

Red Delicious Apple Trees are not self-fertile. You will need to plant another apple tree to achieve fruiting. Below are the most common pollinators...
       
•  Gala Apple Tree •  Winesap Apple Tree
•  Fuji Apple Tree •  McIntosh Apple Tree
•  Honeycrisp Apple Tree •  Pink Lady Apple Tree
•  Yellow Delicious Apple Tree •  Granny Smith Apple Tree
   
Crab Apple Trees also make some of the best pollinators for Fruiting Apple Trees. Because they bloom for a long period of time and produce an abundance of pollen that are compatible with most Fruiting Apple Tree varieties.

For more information on apple pollination, view our Apple Pollination Guide.

We planted this apple tree on our backyard. We looked at popular home improvement stores for apple trees but their apple trees had only but a few branches which is nothing compare to the kind of apple tree that we received from Fast Growing Trees Nursery. This apple tree came with fruits already! You can notice that they put in time and care into this tree. It came very nicely packaged. I cannot say anything wrong about this tree. I guess the thing that really impressed us was the number of branches which is very important if you are looking to get the most out of your apple tree. They did a great job at pruning. This tree had about 12 branches compare to 3 or 4 at some other stores. I will definitely recommend this tree to anyone.

I bought one of these and a Fugi to plant next to it about three years ago. They both look good. I dont really give them any care. I can't say they have grown much and they have not bare fruit. I live on the southern edge of its growing area. (FL/GA line) they do look pretty in spring.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Red Delicious Apple Tree



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Red Delicious Apple Tree.

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.



Step 2: Place Your Plant


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.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


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.

I feel Red Delicious is a great overall tree. We found that our county extension lists them as great for our area and they are also a great pollinator for many varieties....especially varieties known to do well in our area of zone 5.

A shopper on Jul 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: We offer younger trees that grow into the full large trees that you desire. Our most mature Apple Trees are the 5 to 6 ft size.
Is it recommended that you plant more than one tree?
Tony L on Nov 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Nine years ago I bought a golden delicious and a cherry tree. This year, squirrels ate half of the apples and I harvested the other half. My half was 182 lbs. from one tree. The Red Delicious Apple tree hasn't produced one fruit yet, but I bet I will have lots of them in a couple of years. If you can eat, can, juice hundreds of pounds of apples, get more than one tree. Even one tree can give you lots of apples with very little maintenance. It's up to you.
how long does it take to bear apples?
A shopper on Sep 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: the first year after I plant the tree I had 5 beautiful apple many more this year the tree has groan to 11 ft and the trunk is 3 1/5 inches
if I order a 2-3 ft tree, will I be able to harvest this fall?

Will trees and shrubs look like the photographs?


Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos. Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.


Trimming & Pruning

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You!


Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
