Yellow Delicious Apple Tree

Grow Sweet - Delicious Apples - Without the Wait

Height:

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.

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.

It's critical that you purchase an apple tree that is already "branched" from a nursery that knows how to prune its young trees. This trains your apple tree to grow more branches. More branches mean more fruit, earlier production, stronger limbs and a healthier tree.

Most nurseries sell tall, skinny stems with no branches – commonly referred to as "whips." They can take several years to fruit and will generally be less productive when mature.

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.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.

Tree to Door

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.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

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.

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.

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.



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 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.

By: John Hopkins
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).
