The Benefits of Bare-Root Trees...

Bare-root trees are 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.

Selling bare-root trees allows us to offer you a higher quality product at a lower price.

This fast grower is the perfect tree for the impatient apple lover... because you won't be waiting long for your fruit. Some trees have already produced apples out in our nursery!

You can even grow your Yellow Delicious apples organically... meaning you don't have to bother with pesticides. Just pick 'em right off the branch for a quick snack.

Their tender skin makes them easy to bite into… rewarding you with a delicious flavor that's a fall favorite.

Yellow Delicious Apples are great for storage…just pick them when they're ripe and snack for months! Easy to grow and disease resistant!

They are normally planted in pairs so they can pollinate each other. This pollination causes your tree to produce more fruit! Pair up your Yellow Delicious with Gala, Red Fuji or Granny Smith apple trees for best pollination.

Yellow Delicious Trees from Fast Growing Trees are pruned back and trained to develop an advanced branching structure. This process means more work and an extra year for us, but the difference you experience is dramatic.
 

Yellow Delicious Apple Tree Pollination

Yellow Delicious Apple Trees are partially self-fertile. However, you will receive a much larger crop if pollinated by the following apple trees...
       
•  Gala Apple Tree •  Jonathan Apple Tree
•  Fuji Apple Tree •  McIntosh Apple Tree
•  Granny Smith Apple Tree •  Pink Lady Apple Tree
  •  Red Delicious 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.

It's Easy to Plant your Yellow Delicious Apple Tree


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Yellow 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 Yellow 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 Yellow 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.

I bought a yellow dwarf few years back. The tree has grown like heck and is also very hardy. We lost the siding on our home from a hale storm that beat all the trees we own, but my yellow did well even with the all the damage. I don't understand though why one year this tree produces lots of apples and the next none? That's actually what brought me to web site. (reseach)

Will my 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.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.


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.
