Malus domestica 'Golden Delicious' - apple tree

Golden Delicious is a favourite apple brand. It comes from the USA, 1890. The fruit is sweet, juicy and crisp, of golden yellow to greeny-yellow colour. Its size is dependent on soil fertility. The fruit can be very large.

It is usually trouble-free as far as late frosts and is disease resistant. The fruit ripens at the end of October. Its big advantage is excellent storing – under good conditions it can be kept nice and tasty until spring or early summer the following year. It is self-fertile and works as a good pollinator for others. Pruning is necessary for heavy crop, and also advisable for keeping the tree smaller.

It is very hardy but needs a long summer with plenty of direct sunlight for the fruit to ripen well. It benefits from balanced fertilizing – fruit is larger and matures more reliably.
