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. In fact, our larger Red Delicious varieties have already produced apples at our nursery.

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.

Better than expected !

Easy, and informative web sight. We ordered 2 4-5 ft. apple tress. They came very quickly, and in great shape. The trees actually were 6ft. and 61/2 ft. tall. Great instruction on how to take care of the new trees were included in the box. There was no damage to the trees either.

Red Delicious Apple Tree

The tree came well packaged, and appears to be very healthy, can't wait for it to have a year or two in the ground here to taste the fruit.

First time ordering online!

We always shop with our local nurseries, but decided to try ordering online. I was pleasantly surprised at how well our Red Delicious was packaged, and how quick it arrived!! It's been planted and so far, so good.
