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 variety to achieve fruiting. Below are the most effective pollinators we have chosen for your area...

Crabapple 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.

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.

Great Trees & Service
I purchased a Red Delicious apple.a Granny Smith apple and two Myers lemons. The trees arrived in two days and were well packed. One of the lemons was apparently damaged b/4 being packed I immediatly emailed a discription of the damage. 48 hours later a beautiful replacement arrived
The trees were promptly planted and look healthy and showed no signs of stress. Beautiful specimens and great service

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.

Planting & Care

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.

How far apart to plant apple trees ?
A shopper on Jul 14, 2014
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.
I am looking for full size apple trees. How do I specify them?
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.

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
How long does it take for a tree to start growing the apples?
Heather L on Sep 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It can take 2-5 years to produce.
Can the Red Delicious be pollinated by the 5 in 1?
James H on Feb 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the 5-in-1 will pollinate the Red Delicious.
which dwarf apple tree is the most resistant to cedar apple rust?
andrew k on Jan 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We use the same most disease and pest resistant root stock on all apples. Therefore they are all resistant.
if I order a 2-3 ft tree, will I be able to harvest this fall?
bob s on Mar 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would wait 2-3 years to produce.
