Get Sweet, Delicious Apples...Without the Wait

Why Golden Delicious Apple Trees?

With our Golden Delicious, you’ll get low-maintenance fruit, right in your own backyard, organically and in record time. The Golden Delicious is one of the country’s most popular apples, and for good reason: Each bite of a Golden Delicious Apple is extra juicy and sweet.

Plus, our Golden Delicious Apple Tree is disease resistant, so not only is it an ultra-fast producer…it’s easy to grow without the aid of pesticides, too. These apples don’t have a trace of bitter flavor, so they’re perfect for cooking, baking or even picking and eating right off the branch.

Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better

Golden Delicious Trees shipped from our nursery are pruned back and trained to develop an advanced branching structure.

Don’t wait – our Golden Delicious Apple Trees are in high demand for their amazing benefits and robust, delicious fruit. Get your own Golden Delicious today!

Pollination Info

Golden Delicious Apple Tree Pollination

Golden 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...

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 Yellow 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.

The best tree purchasing website

My experience was excellent! I was amazed by the customer service experience and the trees (both fruit and flowering trees) that I purchased were healthy and were packaged really well. My Golden Delicious Apple trees already have flowers on them and they are doing really well. I am really pleased with both the products I purchased and also the customer service that I have experienced at FastGrowingTrees.com. Keep doing what you do :-)

Broken trees

Although the customer service was quick and helpful, both shipments of trees we ordered were broken and almost dead. After the second such shipment, we did request a credit to our account and customer service expressed their apologies. We will order from them again.

Excellent condition

The tree was full of leaves and easy to transplant. It’s adjusting well to the summer heat.
