Golden Delicious Apple Trees
Golden Delicious apple trees make a great addition to the backyard orchard.
And who wouldn’t want one of these highly ‘delicious’ fruit trees in the landscape?
These apple trees are self-pollinating and quite hardy, thriving in USDA zones 4-9. The medium to large yellow apples have a mild, sweet flavor that is delicious in pies as well as adding sweetness to pork dishes and salads.
When you learn how to grow a Golden Delicious apple tree, you are not only getting a beautiful addition to your garden but also investing in your health. Eating one apple gives you 17% of the USDA recommended daily allowance of fiber and is a tasty source of vitamin C.
The fruit will be ripe in September and will keep for 3-4 months in a cool room or refrigerator. Be sure to use up any blemished or larger apples right away, as these will cause all of the apples to decay much faster.
