Malus 'Yellow Delicious' Apple Tree

If you love the smooth, sweet, mellow flavor of the Golden Delicious apple (a.k.a. Yellow Delicious apple), you’re not alone.

The perfect yellow Apple tree for a home grower. Usually grows only 8 to 10 feet tall and wide, and bears full-sized fruit earlier than standard-size fruit trees. Produces golden yellow apples in abundance. Great for desserts and snacks.

The self-fruitful tree produces yellow-green, crisp, sweet, and flavorful apples in early fall. Great cross pollinizer for Red Delicious. This long-time favorite is a reliable producer that has adapted to a variety of climates. 

A semi-dwarf tree grown on M111 rootstock. It can be maintained at 8'-10' with summer pruning.

This people-pleaser ranks near the top of the list of America’s favorite apples. Only Red Delicious outranks it, and that variety’s hold on the number one spot is slipping. But here the thing—if you’ve only eaten supermarket Golden Delicious apples, you probably don’t even realize how scrumptious this variety can be! Golden Delicious apples destined for the mass market are usually picked unripe, stored for months, and shipped hundreds of miles. A Golden Delicious apple picked fresh and perfectly ripe off your own tree, on the other hand, it will be honey-sweet and bursting with flavor. You’ll be amazed at the difference.
