Grow Sweet - Delicious Apples - Without the Wait

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 self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional pollinator will drastically increase the size of your crop. 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.

Perfect condition!
We love our apple tree! I was very nervous about ordering trees online but, it was shipped fast and arrived healthy and in perfect condition! Planting instructions were very clear to follow and our tree is thriving. I have already ordered again and highly recommend!

My first purchase from Fast Growing Trees
I was searching the web one night and happened to discover FGT website.I was impressed with the site and several of the reviews,so I decided to give them a try. I purchased a Yellow Delicious apple tree in the 6 -7 ft. range because I am interested in quick fruit production. I only ordered one tree for starters to gauge the quality and the shipping care before I purchase additional trees in the future.I placed and received my order within two business days.The tree appeared very healthy and was boxed and shipped very well.It has been planted about three weeks now and is doing very well. I hope to purchase some more fruit trees from this company in the future.Thanks FGT!

Gala and Tellow delicious trees!
The Gala was fantastic! It set well and took off almost immediately. The Yellow Delicious isn't doing as well due to it's being split partially from the root-stock in shipping (they set something on it and broke it over.) - Clearly NOT what was shipped! I Have "splinted" it and it now looks like it is about to overcome the damage but it has stunted it somewhat so far. I will be looking to purchase another Y.Delicious and a couple of pear trees from these folks next!

Great Apple Trees
Trees were delivered as promised. Actually I think think they were a little taller than the size I ordered. Love the trees.

Too early to tell but it's healthy so far.
It's been in the ground for a month. It is definitely struggling a bit but not nearly as much as 2 other trees.

It arrived in fairly good shape given the weather we have, record heat (90-100) with long dry spells. I can't quite figure out how often to water because the soil here is hard to read. The planting mixes I added to supplement the lack of soil (I dug up 3/4 of it in rock form, not dirt).
So far the plant has kept most of it's leaves and is doing OK.

It is about 6 feet with a 1.25 inch diameter trunk.
My grow zone on the site may say 8 but temperatures vary in my area of the P.N.W. due to my geography. Seasonal temperatures for the last 3 years so far have run the gamut of -20F to 100F. Record snow last 2 winters, winter doesn't end till april sometimes.
The tree was grown with a bamboo pole attached to it, this is how it should be done (and shipped this way too).
Weather it survives the winter or not remains to be seen.

Apple trees are looking good for only being in ground 30 days
Wasn't sure how trees would look or if planting them the end of April that they would make it.
Trees came in with leaves of which we have only lost a few. The wet spring had helped but other than the first few weeks of regular watering they are thriving very well. The Granny Smith & Fuji look just as good. I would not hesitate to order trees again
Can't believe how good they look after they only 30 days
Can't wait for fruit

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.

Planting & Care

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.

I got this tree so I could have fruit that was fresh and that was ripened on the tree, not picked early. Also so the fruit can be pesticide free.

One of my favorite apples! I'd like to just go outside and get one when I want it, rather than buying them.

when does the yellow delicious ripen?
Louis M on Oct 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: They ripen September-October.
Will A Honey Crisp suffice as a pollinator for the Yellow Delicious?
Dick B on Mar 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: A Honeycrisp cannot pollinate a Yellow Delicious. Yellow Delicious pollinators would need a Fuji, Gala, Granny Smith, Jonathan, McIntosh, Pink Lady, Red Delicious or a Crabapple.
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.
Will this survive full sun x 6+ hours a day (South Carolina)?
Susan B on Nov 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We have a lot of sun here in northern Ohio, and my yellow delicious trees do great! Great for apple dumplings!
Can yellow delicious pollinate with another yellow delicious?
Sandy on Jun 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, you would one of the following below to pollinate:
Fuji Apple Tree (Low-Chill)
Gala Apple Tree
Granny Smith Apple Tree
Honeycrisp™ Apple Tree
McIntosh Apple Tree
Pink Lady® Apple Tree (Low-Chill)
Pixie Crunch Apple Tree (Low-Chill)
Red Delicious Apple Tree
Winesap Apple Tree
Mutsu (Crispin) Apple Tree
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.
I live in zone 7. Can I get the yellow delicious now and keep it in a pot indoors for the winter? I don't move into my new home until February and I wanted to plant it in the spring at the new home.
Sheril O on Nov 14, 2018
Does the yellow delicious bloom at the same time as the red Fuji?
