Yellow Delicious Apple Tree

The Yellow Delicious apple tree is one of the most popular apple cultivars in the world. It is known for its large, golden-yellow fruit with a sweet and juicy flavor. Yellow Delicious apples are excellent for eating fresh, but they can also be used for baking, pies, and applesauce.

Yellow Delicious apple trees are relatively easy to grow and are hardy in USDA zones 4-9. They prefer full sun and well-drained soil. Trees typically reach a height of 15-20 feet and a width of 15-18 feet.

To plant a Yellow Delicious apple tree, choose a location in full sun with well-drained soil. Dig a hole that is twice the width of the root ball and just as deep. Place the tree in the hole and backfill with soil, tamping it down gently to remove any air pockets. Water the tree thoroughly.

Yellow Delicious apple trees need regular watering, especially during the first year after planting. Water deeply once a week, or more often if the weather is hot and dry. Fertilize the tree in the spring with a balanced fertilizer.

To prune a Yellow Delicious apple tree, remove any dead, diseased, or damaged branches. You can also prune to shape the tree or to control its size. Prune in the late winter or early spring, before the tree buds out.

Yellow Delicious apple trees are typically insect and disease resistant, but they can be susceptible to apple scab, powdery mildew, and fire blight. To prevent pests and diseases, inspect the tree regularly and treat any problems promptly.

Here are some tips for growing Yellow Delicious apple trees:

  • Choose a location in full sun with well-drained soil.
  • Water regularly, especially during the first year after planting.
  • Fertilize in the spring with a balanced fertilizer.
  • Prune in the late winter or early spring to remove dead, diseased, or damaged branches and to shape the tree.
  • Inspect the tree regularly and treat any pests or diseases promptly.

Note
Please note that the plant will be shipped in its pot, securely fastened with multiple layers of clear tape to prevent any shifting or damage during transit. This ensures that the plant arrives to you with minimal damage, safely and securely. We have been employing this method for shipping plants for several years, occasionally using smaller pots for added safety and convenience during transit. It's important to understand that many plants enter a dormant state during the fall and winter months, resulting in the loss of most leaves and appearing dry or lifeless. This is a natural process, and come springtime, they will begin to regrow and thrive once again. Please be aware that due to regulations set by the Department of Agriculture, there are certain plants and sizes that we are unable to ship to California. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
