Golden Delicious Apple Tree

One of the Few Self-Pollinating Varieties


Yellow peel and sweetly tangy flavor make a tempting snack. One of the best pollinators for other varieties—so much so that it's been called a "rooster" tree! Best as a short-storage eating apple. Ripens mid Sept. to Oct.

  • Zone 4 - 7 (-20° F.).
  • Height 20 feet for standard, 6 feet for Li'l BIG..
  • Shade Required Full sun.
