Red Delicious Apple Tree: The Icon of American Orchards

The Red Delicious Apple Tree is an iconic symbol of American orchards, known for its striking, deep red apples and crisp, mildly sweet flavor. This tree is a prolific producer, offering a generous harvest of beautifully shaped apples that are perfect for snacking and salads. Typically reaching heights of 12-15 feet, depending on the size you choose that we offer (dwarf, semi-dwarf, or standard) the Red Delicious Apple Tree thrives in zones 5 to 8, making it a versatile choice for various climates.

 Renowned for its glossy skin and classic apple taste, this variety is a staple in many homes and markets. The Red Delicious Apple Tree begins to bear fruit in just 4-6 years, rewarding your patience with an abundance of luscious apples. While it is partially self-fertile, planting it near other apple varieties can significantly enhance fruit production and quality through cross-pollination. Add a Red Delicious Apple Tree to your garden and enjoy the classic, crisp flavor it brings to your table year after year.
