Product Description

Grow Delicious Fruit Without the Wait

Why Red Delicious Apple Trees?

For one, it’s America’s favorite apple. The Red Delicious is widely grown because of its delicious flavor, fast and easy growth, as well as its adaptability to a variety of soil types.

That’s right: America's favorite snacking apple is low-maintenance and ultra-productive, too.

Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better

Our Red Delicious Trees are in a league of their own because we plant, monitor and nurture them well from day one. Because we’ve grafted our varieties from proven mother stock, you get a consistent, high-quality performer that provides fruit in just one year. 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!

And though you do need a pollinator to ensure your Red Delicious performs, we have the perfect pairing: Our Granny Smith Apple Tree. Another low-maintenance variety that offers the key for healthy, hearty, heavy fruit production.

Looking for a heavy performer of your own? Look no further – order your own Red Delicious Apple Tree today, before they’re gone!

Pollination Info

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...

Planting & Care

1. Planting: For best results, find a location with well-drained soil and full sun - about 6 hours of sunlight per day. Once you've selected a location, dig a hole that's twice the width of the root ball and just as deep. Then, place your tree, back fill and tamp down the soil, and water to settle the soil. Finally, mulch to retain moisture.

*Tip: Make sure your mulch is not touching the base of the trunk.

2. Watering: Your Red Delicious Apple will benefit from a regular watering each week, though you may have to water more during times of drought. If you're not sure when to water, simply check the soil down to a depth of about 2 or 3 inches - if it's dry here, it's time to water.

3. Pruning: Once your tree has become established and is starting to bear fruit, it will need some periodic, moderate pruning. Only prune the tree during times of dormancy, making sure to remove any vigorous, upright stems and weak, damaged or dead branches.

Shipping Details

Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.

Great Tree

The tree arrived quickly and was well package. The tree was in excellent health and seem to be well taken care of. We planted the tree with no issues and it is doing great. Very reliable and the tree was as advertised.

Nice Tree

It looked ok when I received it and planted it 2 weeks ago. It really perked up after all the rain we had.

7 feet tall as asked for!

Received the next day after the 'on the way' e-mail. Excellent tree, and now growing in its new home. I'm spreading the limbs with jute twine and stakes to allow the central leader and limbs to grow and spread to how I desire. It is a 'dwarf' as is all the trees I have ordered from Fast growing trees. The dwarf Granny smith apple tree I got last spring was a 7 foot tree, and I had to brace it with jute twine and stakes because it has several large apples which was weighing the canopy down. It is about 8 feet high now, and thriving.
