Golden Delicious Apple Tree

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. Zones 4-7.

NOTE: We are unable to ship our trees to PO Boxes at this time.

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.
