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.

Why buy a Standard Deluxe or Li'l Big Deluxe package - Deluxe fruit trees include 2 oz. Quik-Cal Pelletized Calcium, 12 oz. bag of Fruit Tree Food Starter Formula and a premium tree guard to protect the trunk for gnawing pests, weed trimmers and mowers. Li'l-BIG™ Deluxe fruit trees also include our innovative tree support, recommended for all Li'l-BIG trees.
