    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 low maintenance fruit, right in your own backyard... organically!

- One of the country's most popular apples
- Produces organically grown apples in record time
- Disease resistant

These apples are extra juicy, crisp, and sweet! Not a trace of bitterness or tartness. Great for baking or making delicious desserts.

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 •  Winesap 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.

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)

I bought my Yellow Delicious Apple tree in June or July of 2011, it has grow well and has apples already, in fact I need to thin them out because there are too many! Great tree! Bought with a Gala for cross pollination.

Taking care of it!
We received this Tree well packaged, I was impressed. It was in great conditions and the size was pretty good. We planted on raining season, so, we could see the green coming really fast. Now with the hot temperatures the growing has slow a little bit, but I think is in good condition.

I suppose maybe until next summer we will get some apples from our apple Tree.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for 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.

Will A Honey Crisp suffice as a pollinator for the Yellow Delicious?

I'm looking for a full growth apple tree, 25 t0 30 ft tall...???.............Yellow delicious
jumper on May 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Ed. The Yellow Delicious you are looking for would need to be grafted to M25 root stock. The tree will be quite vigorous in growth habit up to three feet per year under optimal conditions. This variety should reach a height of 20-25 ft tall. Run a search for full size Yellow/Golden Delicious Apple tree. There are a few nurseries that still offer apple trees grafted onto this root stock.
How often do you water?
Brandy S on Mar 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I did twice a week, a deep root watering, when it was dry and when rainy add no water. Only do this as your plant is new to help roots grow deep.
I live in western tip of wv what time of year should the yellow delicious tree be planted?
james m on Jun 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: In warmer areas, this apple can be planted year round as long as the ground is not frozen. If you plant in summer, extra care must be given to keep the plant moist for the first season or two, though the site needs to be well-drained so it does not get soggy. We sell it in a pot in the summer to facilitate transplanting at this time. If you live in zone 5, your plant will do best if you plant it in the spring so it has time to establish its roots before facing winter. If you plant when you are still having frost, the plant should be dormant so new growth is not killed, which is why we supply dormant bare root plants during the colder months.

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.
